SPOKANE-- Avista Stadium, home of the Spokane Indians, was named the 2012 Northwest League Field of the Year Tuesday.
This is Avista Stadium's eight year in a row and 14 of the last 16 seasons recieving the title.
The honor is given annually to the team that has the best playing surface and maintains the highest quality field throughout the 76-game season as voted on by coaches and managers.
Spokane Indian's outfielder Royce Bolinger said he has played on a lot of nice fields in his career, but he says nothing compares to playing at Avista Stadium.
In addition to the N.W.L. Field of the Year award, Spokane Indians Head Groundskeeper, Tony Lee, is eligible to be the Short Season “A” Sports Turf Manager of the Year. He won the award in 2001. Lee will find out later this year in Nashville he has earned that honor.
