The Rancho Cucamonga Epicenter (full official name: City of Rancho Cucamonga Epicenter Entertainment & Sports Complex) is a stadium in Rancho Cucamonga, California. It is primarily used for baseball and is the home field of the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes of the California League. It opened on April 3, 1993 and has a seating capacity of 6,588 people.

HistoryEdit

In 1992, the San Bernardino Spirit were playing at Fiscalini Field, when it was announced that a new ballpark would be built in Rancho Cucamonga for over $20 million. At the time, this was a large amount of money to spend on a new minor league ballpark. The Spirit jumped at the chance to play in this new ballpark and moved in 1993, switching their affiliation from the Seattle Mariners to the San Diego Padres.[4]

Construction for the stadium began on November 14, 1991[1] and was completed in time for the start of the 1993 season.

ImprovementsEdit

Between the 2008 and 2009 seasons, the existing seats were replaced, with the old seats recycled, sealing all the cracks and holes in the concrete around the entire stadium, and installing the new and improved seats into place. There are no changes in the capacity for the stadium. However, the numbers on the first base side (sections 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15) are numbered different than before. The sections now have the number one on the right when facing the field and the largest number of the row on the left when facing the field.[5]

The new seats are navy blue and are equipped with a cup holder for each seat. The lower levels, Super Box and Field Box, are now padded.[5]
