“one of the top stadium experiences in all of minor league baseball”
For fans and players, Principal Park offers one of the top stadium experiences in all of minor league baseball. Principal Park sits at the confluence of the Des Moines and Raccoon Rivers, offers spectacular views of the Iowa State Capitol and downtown Des Moines, and features a first-class playing surface. Principal Park opened prior to the 1992 season and features 11,500 seats, 45 skyboxes, four picnic areas, a kids play area, a fountain in the right field corner, and the Cub Club Restaurant in left field. he original stadium in Des Moines was built on the current site in 1947 and was called Pioneer Park. In 1959, the name was changed to Sec Taylor Stadium in honor of former Des Moines Register and Tribune sports editor Garner W. (Sec) Taylor. The Principal Financial Group purchased the naming rights to the stadium during the 2004 season. The Sec Taylor name remains attached to the stadium's playing field. Planning for a new stadium began in August, 1988 leading up to the demolition of the old stadium on Sept. 10, 1991. The $12 million rebuilding effort began on the old site in October. The first game in the new stadium was played on April 16, 1992.
