PK Park is a baseball stadium in Eugene, Oregon. It is the home of the Oregon Ducks, who resumed in 2009 Pac-12 varsity play after nearly three decades as a club sport. The park is also home to the professional Eugene Emeralds of the Northwest League, a Class A short-season minor league.
Designed by sport architect DLR Group, PK Park has 3,000 fixed seats in the main seating bowl and a total capacity of 4,000 spectators. Fan amenities include a video board, landscaped areas for hospitality, a tiered party plaza called "Fowl Territory," a picnic plaza, and eight upper level suites. It is located just east of Autzen Stadium, Oregon's football stadium. The baseball park was built on the northeast section of the football stadium's parking lot.
PK Park is named after former Oregon athletic director Pat Kilkenny, whose donations helped to fund the stadium. In the program's first period as a varsity sport (1936-1981), the Ducks played at Howe Field. In their first game at PK park on February 27, 2009, the Ducks beat Fresno State, the defending national champions, 1-0 on a walk-off single by senior Andrew Schmidt. The game was played in front of a sellout crowd of 2,777.
