SPOKANE, Wash. -- The Northwest League announced that Avista Stadium has been named the 2013 NWL Field of the Year. Spokane has won the award nine year in a row and 15 of the past 17 seasons.
The award is given every year to the team that has the best playing surface and maintains the highest quality field throughout the 76-game season.
“Winning this award is a great honor,” said Indians Head Groundskeeper Trevor Heilman. “Our crew worked hard this season to uphold and maintain the best field possible for players, coaches and the fans.”
