Momentum Bank Ballpark in Midland, TX, is the home of the Midland RockHounds, the Oakland Athletics' Double-A Texas League farm team. The 1972 San Antonio Missions fled, in time for the next season, to Max H. Christensen Stadium - then a 20-year-old ballpark and now the home of Midland College Chaparrals baseball.

In 2002, the club moved into the new HOK Sport (now Populous) ballpark. Banks have named it ever since its opening, with the newest moniker coming after American Momentum Bank bought Security Bank in 2020. Earlier dollar-holder handles: First American Bank Ballpark, Citibank Ballpark, and Security Bank Ballpark. Although the last change was because of an acquisition, the previous ones were due to changes in the holder of the naming rights contract.

While it seats just under 7,000, it has reported more than 9,000.
