VA Memorial Stadium

V.A. Memorial Stadium
"Home of the Chillicothe Paints"

The Chillicothe Paints make their home at the Veterans Administration Memorial Stadium located on the V.A. Medical Center campus. The stadium is located just 3 miles north of Chillicothe on State Route 104. It was constructed in 1954 by the, "Blue Star Mothers of America.”  A commemorative plaque attached to the wall in the concession area of the stadium reads, "In Living Remembrance of Those Who Served to Preserve the Ideals of this Nation and in Love of Fellow Man."

Originally, the stadium and playing surface were to provide a place for softball games, played by the thousands of veterans who were long-term patients at the V.A. Medical Center. In 1993, with the cooperative effort of the V.A. Administration, the Paints' organization completely renovated the stadium.

During the winter of 2006, a cooperative effort between the Ross County Commissioners and the Convention Facilities Authority resulted in VA Memorial Stadium receiving a new playing surface named FieldTurf.  In addition, a wooden patio and deck was constructed along the left-field foul line and expanded again in 2011. A new roof covering the entire stadium was installed in 2010.

 VA Memorial Stadium is now a true multi-purpose facility that hosts numerous non-baseball events including girls’ high school and collegiate fastpitch softball games, and an adult slow-pitch softball league and tournament. 

Also, many concerts and other entertainment events are held at the stadium.

The facility that the Paints call home is one of the most unique and intimate ballparks in all of baseball.  In 2011, VA Memorial Stadium drew over 100,000 fans in over 300 events throughout a 10-month period.  In addition to hosting Paints' games, the stadium is host to various other events. The North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) & The Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Tournament will both hold their annual baseball tournaments in May 2012.  In June 2012, the OHSBCA Mizuno All-Ohio Series once again will be played at VA Memorial Stadium. The Ohio High School Athletic Association also plays their District and Regional baseball tournaments at the stadium.  VA Memorial Stadium is also the site of numerous collegiate and high school regular-season baseball and softball games in the spring.  From 2008-2011 VA Memorial Stadium was the home of the Mid-American Conference (MAC) Baseball Tournament.  VA Memorial Stadium has also been the site of the historic Ralph Bell Crusade in 1997, the Boston Pops Concert in 2003 and the “Be The One” spiritual concert in 2011.  The medical center also hosts numerous veterans' activities including POW-MIA Recognition Day and a Veteran's Day Parade.
