Dell Diamond is the home stadium of the Round Rock Express, the Triple-A Minor League Baseball affiliate of the Texas Rangers major league baseball team. On April 16, 2000, the then-Double-A affiliate Express played their first home game at the stadium.
Dell Diamond is built on 85 acres (344,000 m²) of former farmland on the east side of Round Rock, Texas, a rapidly growing suburban city northeast of Austin. Nolan Ryan and his son Reid Ryan, part owners of the Express, originally wanted a stadium inside the city of Austin, but found a more attractive site in the City of Round Rock, with support from the city leadership. The city of Round Rock contributed $7.35 million to the $25 million cost of the facility. The city owns the ballpark and gave the Express a 38-year lease. Dell Computer Corporation (now Dell, Inc.) contracted for naming rights in a deal that will cost the company $2.5 million over 15 years.
The stadium has also hosted several college games, including some early-season University of Texas contests in 2007 while the Longhorns' home field, UFCU Disch-Falk Field, had been undergoing a major renovation project. A showcase neutral-site game was played on February 21, 2012, between the Baylor Bears and Texas State Bobcats. Dell Diamond is also the designated site for the University Interscholastic League state baseball tournament. On February 13, 2016, the stadium hosted a rugby union match between Canada and USA Rugby, as part of the Americas Rugby Championship.

Dell Diamond Reviews
Dell Diamond is an excellent entertainment choice. Lots of food and drink options. Good viewing for the game. more »
Fantastic ball park, easy to get to, very easy parking and leaving the ball park is not a headache. Parking was $10.00 but if you have DV plates it is free, just tell them first that you are a DV... more »
Fun ballpark but surprisingly not overly kid friendly. No kids on drink cups, no kids size food choices. No carriers for large orders of food or drinks, like for a family, and since none of the drinks have kids and you have to buy full baskets, really difficult to carry back to seats. Plenty of entertainment choices for kids and families. But really need to work on that food service being more family friendly. Make sure someone goes with you to the concession stand or you'll be SOL.
Great game and environment. Highly recommend filling your stomach prior to going. $12 burgers/entrees, $5 for bottled water, $6 pretzels and $11 beers will really put a dent in your wallet. Refreshment prices should be comparable to a typical fast food place. $8 for entree, side and drink.
