The Rockford Riverhawks were supposed to move into a new field for the 2005 season, but construction was delayed and they were forced to stay and play another season in Rockford's Marinelli Field. Marinelli Field has been around since the late 1980's and has hosted different MLB-affiliated teams. The Riverhawks are an independent league team, but they did win the 2004 championship. The parking is free, but it's a bit difficult to get to the field. The tickets are cheap and the Riverhawks run promotions nearly every game.
