Toledo has had a long illustrious with professional baseball that goes over a century back. It was in the year 1883 that the first baseball team set up camp in the city and since then, albeit a few breaks in between, it has been one of the most popular destinations in the country.
Mud Hens changed quite a few ballparks after their inception. In the year 1965 they moved to the Ned Skeldon Stadium. It wasn’t too bad a facility. It opened its doors for minor league baseball in 1965 and that remained the case all the way to 2001 when Mud Hens shifted to their new ballpark. The biggest thing that went against the Ned Skeldon Stadium the fact there was not a lot of room for upgrading the facility. So in late 1990’s plans about constructing a new minor league ballpark in Toledo began to take shape. So the Mud Hens decided to re-locate the team to the new arena.
After getting everyone on board and gathering adequate finances the ground breaking ceremony was held on 20th October, 2000. Architectural firm HNTB was given the task of designing the stadium. Turner Construction were to manage the entire project. After two years of grueling work and an estimated cost of over thirty nine million dollars the Fifth Third Field Toledo was ready.
The venue can play host to an impressive ten thousand and three hundred fans at a time. Mud Hens didn’t waste any time in shifting to the new magnificent stadium. They played their first game at their new home on 9th April, 2002 against Norfolk Tides. It was a monumental occasion that was attended by a packed house. The game itself turned out to be an epic encounter as well which saw Mud Hens open their account with a seven to five win. It also marked the first time baseball team had played a match in Toledo.
