John Thurman Field, Modesto

#4 of 13 in Things to do in Modesto
John Thurman Field is a stadium in Modesto, California. It is primarily used for baseball, and is the home field of the Modesto Nuts minor league baseball team of the California League. It was built in 1955 and holds 4,000 people. It was later named for California State Assemblyman John E. Thurman, from Modesto.
Originally named Del Webb Field, the Modesto ballpark was renamed for state assemblyman John Thurman in 1983 and underwent over $3.93 million worth of renovations prior to the start of the 1997 to keep it up to California League standards.
On April 7, 2007, left-hander Randy Johnson made an appearance for the Arizona Diamondbacks affiliate, then called the Visalia Oaks. Johnson's appearance sparked a media frenzy and helped the Nuts draw over 5,000 fans for that day's game.

  • We love coming out to see the Modesto Nuts. John Thurman Field is an old baseball field, but it is well kept and there isn't a bad seat. It is a great place to watch a ball game and see fireworks on the weekends during the summer. Fun for the whole family.
