Cheney Stadium, in Tacoma, Washington, is the home field for the Tacoma Rainiers minor-league baseball team of the Triple-A Pacific Coast League. The stadium opened in 1960, and has a capacity of 9,600.

Cheney Stadium has been home to Pacific Coast League baseball continuously since 1960, in the form of seven teams: the Tacoma Giants (1960-65), Cubs (1966-71), Twins (1972-77), Yankees (1978), Tugs (1979), Tigers (A's) (1980-94), and the Rainiers (Mariners) (1995-present).

Notable players who played in Cheney Stadium include Juan Marichal, Gaylord Perry, José Canseco, Mark McGwire, Jason Giambi, Félix Hernández, Cliff Lee, and Alex Rodriguez.

During his 1985 stint in Tacoma, José Canseco cleared the center fence to hit one of the most impressive home runs in Tacoma history. The center fence has since been lowered.
