Victory Field in Indianapolis, IN, is the home of the Indianapolis Indians, the Pittsburgh Pirates' Triple-A East farm team.

It served as a recreational area for basketball players in the 2021 NCAA Basketball Tournament, which was played in a "bubble" because of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The HOK Sport (now Populous) brick ballpark replaced Owen J. "Donie" Bush Stadium in 1996. The old yard, originally Perry Field, was renamed Victory Field during World War II. Folks kept calling it that after it was renamed for local ballplayer and later Indians president Donie Bush in 1966, so the old name was recast on the new ballpark. The old Bush Stadium drew 13 million fans in 65 years, but "The Vic" matched that in just over 20.

Victory Field features grassy picnic seating in the outfield.
