Quick Facts:
Merrillville High School is a relatively new campus. A site visitor states that the school opened in the 1960s.

In 1995, the Mid-America Conference took up residence at four sites, including this one and Block Stadium in nearby East Chicago. Reportedly, the Merrillville Muddogs – who called this facility “Muddogs Field” during their tenure – led the league in attendance, which isn’t saying much. The league folded after just one season.

Interestingly, the Muddogs chose the same primary team color – purple – as the field’s usual tenants, the Merrillville Pirates. The school has a very impressive football facility, Demaree Stadium, within the same field complex.
