Mike Lansing Field
Location Casper, Wyoming United States
Building chronology
Built 2002

Mike Lansing Field in Casper, WY, was the home of Casper affiliated baseball from 2002 through 2011. After that, the Casper Ghosts of the Pioneer League moved into a just-renovated ballpark in Grand Junction, CO, as the Grand Junction Rockies.

Its tenure hosting a minor league team is one of the shortest among ballparks that were not intended to be temporary. The season it opened, the Butte Copper Kings moved to Casper and joined the Colorado Rockies' farm system. They originally used the Rockies' nickname but adopted "Ghosts" in 2008. That didn't last long; the big Rockies made a ghost of Wyoming baseball by buying the Ghosts after the 2010 season and moving them to Colorado in time for the 2012 campaign.

Although the official name of the facility is "Mike Lansing Field" - saluting a former Major League second baseman who was born less than two hours from Casper - the stadium's main signage reads only "Lansing Field".
