Frank DeLuca Hall of Fame Field
1000 Main Street, Stratford, Connecticut 06615
Press Box (203) 377-6388

Before being renamed Frank DeLuca Hall of Fame Field in 1997, the field was previously known as Avco Lycoming Field, Textron Lycoming Field and AlliedSignal Field. The field, built in 1966, has undergone several renovations.

Thanks to the Town of Stratford and the State of Connecticut, the renovations to transform Frank DeLuca Hall of Fame Field into a state-of-the-art softball facility are nearly completed. Regular-season seating capacity is now 1,800. The section of bleachers behind home plate features six rows of club seating and seven rows of bleacher-style seating with back rests. The sections on first and third base lines are regular style bleacher seats, while three additional sections have been installed down the right field line.

Lights, a concession stand located directly behind home plate, restrooms and a 300-car parking lot have all been added. DeLuca Field has the capability to accommodate 500 cars with an adjacent 700-car lot available for state, regional and national events.

Since 1988, the Stratford Brakettes women's major fast pitch team has called Frank DeLuca Hall of Fame Field home. Prior to that, the team played for 40 years at Raybestos Memorial Field, which is located in the center of town. Beginning in 1947, the team's 70-year history has been a storied one. No other team has won as many national titles (28) nor world titles (3) and no other team has had more players (23) named to the National Hall of Fame.

The ballpark includes: 
  • Regulation softball field with a 300 foot permanent outfield fence and a 225 foot temporary fence 
  • 1800 seating capacity with 150 stadium seats, 225 bench seats with back rests and 1425 bleacher seats and seats for the mobility impaired
