Stadium or Home
Rent One Park is a stadium in Marion, Illinois that was completed in 2007. It is primarily used for baseball and is the home of the Southern Illinois Miners of the Frontier League.
The stadium has a contemporary, non-traditional look, void of the common red brick and green steel common among ballparks around the United States.
One of the most unusual features of the new stadium is the roof, which slopes down toward the field. As a result, foul balls hit by players can sometimes roll back down for spectators to catch.
The Frontier League stadium located roughly 120 miles southeast of St Louis on Interstate 57. There are over 3,400 standard armchair ballpark seats including wider chair seating behind home plate. Down the left field line and in the outfield is lawn seating that can accommodate over 2,000 fans. Rent One Park also has two picnic gardens: Budweiser Bullpen Bar-n-Grille down the right field line that can host as many as 250 people and the Rent One Picnic Garden located in the outfield with seating for over 500 people. The upper level features 14 luxury suites and an enclosed banquet area for approximately 200 persons.
Rent One Park also contains an open-air entry plaza, home and visitor clubhouses, dedicated maintenance building, administrative offices, and team store. The scoreboard and video board are accompanied by 12 panels for advertisement on the right-field wall, beyond and above the bullpens. Down the left field side in the corner of the park is the McDonald's Fun Zone, a children's play area with 4 inflatable games. The inflatable games include baseball, basketball, wiffle ball, and skee-ball.
The company that holds the naming rights, Rent One, is a rent-to-own retail store chain.
