The Friends of Warren Ballpark is an organization of baseball fans that recognizes the historic value of the field and its place in the history of America’s National Pastime. Our purpose is to promote, restore and renovate the ballpark as a functioning community asset for the Bisbee Unified School District and the community at large. We have built new bathrooms that are ADA compliant, replaced the bleacher screening, added signage and a new scoreboard. In 2022 the entire surrounding fence was replaced with new lumber provided by the Friends with labor provided by the awesome BUSD maintenance crew!


The Friends are working to ensure that the story of Warren Ballpark’s fascinating and colorful past becomes a recognized part of American baseball’s rich history. They are presently planning and organizing the 2023 Copper City Classic Vintage Base Ball Tournament to be held in Bisbee on April 1st and 2nd, 2023. The Friends conduct field research and interviews of former players and managers as an ongoing effort to improve our knowledge and understanding of the unique role of Warren Ballpark in Bisbee’s history and in the history of The Game. We also share our research findings with the media and community historical organizations through presentations, displays and planned publications.


After a century of use our beloved ballpark is showing its age. The Friends of Warren Ballpark is committed to working with Bisbee Unified School District to return the park to its condition at its prime when it was a minor league baseball park. We also support the district’s efforts to improve the park’s accessibility to disabled fans and to upgrade its infrastructure as a public facility. The Friends of Warren Ballpark is sponsored by the Bisbee Council on the Arts and Humanities, a tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) organization.
