Municipal Stadium, which was first used for one season of the Sunset League, was a standby in the California League for four decades, with several teams moving in and out of the facility over the years. The last Cal League entry, the Spurs, relocated to San Bernardino in 1993.
The park saw one more professional baseball fling in the late 1990s, with an entry in the independent Western League. Today, the park continues to see use for high school and amateur baseball.
