Riders Field in Frisco, TX, is the home of the Frisco RoughRiders, the Texas Rangers' Double-A Texas League farm team. They led all of their class in attendance the last 15 seasons of the Affiliated Era.

Dr Pepper Snapple Group, based in nearby Plano, owned naming rights the first 15 years of the facility's existence, calling it Dr Pepper/Seven Up Ballpark through 2005 and Dr Pepper Ballpark the rest of the contract. The bottler did not renew after the 2017 season, but the name stuck. The 'Riders, after not collecting another penny for three seasons, re-named it for themselves heading into the 2021 campaign.

Frisco is in Rangers' protected territory, with the ballparks only about 40 miles apart. Cowboys Stadium architect HKS created both; Pepper's unique design won baseballparks.com's 2003 Best New Ballpark. From certain vantage points, it looks more like a cul-de-sac of homes than a baseball stadium.

The Lazy River - not a swimming pool because this attraction's water flows - opened in 2016.
