Baseball.ca describes Cullen Field like this:
Built in 1972 in the heart of a 97 acre sports complex known as Mic-Mac Park. The field was originally named the Babe Ruth Diamond as the Mic-Mac Club of Windsor was hosting the 1972 Mid-Atlantic Babe Ruth Baseball Championship.
In 1995 the diamond was renamed Rev. Ronald Cullen Field in honor of his years as a prominent coach, teacher and mentor. The facility received the Ontario Parks Association Engineering Award. Cullen Field features Major League dimensions, lighting, seating for 5000, scoreboard, four dressing rooms and large dugouts.
Over the years the field has served as the headquarters and main field for numerous major events including the 1986, 1987and 1993 World Youth Baseball Championships, Baseball Canada’s first single site National Championships and the Ontario and Canadian National Championships, Midget, Junior and Senior. For a number of years it was the training site for Canada’s Senior National Baseball team. The field also serves as home for local teams in the Can-Am and Mic-Mac Leagues, high school leagues and is the site of the League’s Annual Championships. This will also be the site of the 2011 National Junior Championship.
The entire Complex is maintained with great pride by the City of Windsor Parks Department.
