The Cowboys of New Mexico Highlands University (usually simply called Highlands) play on this fine field adjacent to Perkins Stadium, the school’s football and track facility. The field is dedicated to Harold Brandt, who was head of the industrial arts department at the one-time normal school for 36 years.
The park features an artificial infield and a grass outfield, not an uncommon configuration on college campuses.
Highlands’ field was used as an alternate site for a few Las Vegas Train Robbers games in 2013. It could not become a permanent site because, even though the field is in much better shape than the one at Rodriguez Park, there is no field lighting in place.
