You’ll think you’ve stepped back in time when you visit Rathert Stadium. Rathert Stadium is named in honor of City Engineer Arthur Rathert, who donated many late-night hours to make this venue a reality for Junction City. Originally a WPA project, Rathert Stadium was completed in 1937 and described as “the finest baseball stadium in Kansas.” This architectural landmark is constructed of native limestone with wooden seating. Circular in shape, the stadium faces northeast and the open grill-work at the back provides for air circulation, making the stadium cooler.
Major renovations in 2002 included work on the stadium, seats, locker rooms, press box, lights, fencing around the field, and outside the stadium a parking lot and picnic shelters. Further renovations added additional seating, a Beer Garden, and multiple elevated wood decks for patrons. Rathert Stadium is currently home to the Junction City Brigade baseball team.
