Originally known as Ferris field, the park was renamed in 1993 as Fiscalini Field after John Fiscalini, a native of San Bernardino who was a standout baseball player. The field was used as a spring training site on and off for the Pittsburgh Pirates fro 1935 thru 1952 and the St. Louis Browns in 1948 and 1953. Minor League baseball was there as the San Bernardino Stars played in the CAL league in 1941. The San Bernardino Pioneers of the Sun league plaed in 1946 and 1947. Finally in 1988 a fresh face changed the San Bernardino Spirit of the CAL league. Ken Griffey Jr. made his pro baseball debut. He only played 58 games, but did put on a preview of what was to come. The Spirit and minor league baseball left Fiscalini field for good after the 1995 season. They changed their name and moved into the brand new Arrowhead credit union park in San Bernardino. Fiscalini Field is still in use today by high school, semi pro teams, and is the home field for Cal State San Bernardino and San Bernardino Valley College.
