Newman Outdoor Field is a baseball stadium located on the campus of North Dakota State University and is the home of the independent league Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks (American Association) baseball team and the North Dakota State Bison baseball team. The 4,513 seat facility was known as "The Nest" when it opened in 1996. In 1998, naming rights were sold to Newman Outdoor Advertising for $1.5 million. The stadium contains the Maury Wills Museum in honor of the former Major League Baseball player who worked for the RedHawks as a coach and a radio analyst. The first number retired at the stadium was the #8 worn by hometown hero Roger Maris when he played for the Fargo-Moorhead Twins in the 1950s. The outfield distances replicate those of Yankee stadium where Maris made history. Company picnic outing?
