About Downs Field

As the past home of the Negro Baseball League’s Austin Black Senators, Downs Field has seen the likes of baseball greats Satchel Paige, Willie Wells, Buck O’Neil, and a countless number of baseball players who have gone on to contribute to Major and Minor League Baseball.

In 2013 the field was designated as an historic landmark by the Texas Historical Commission. Today it’s home to Huston-Tillotson University Rams Baseball team and the Austin Metro Baseball League.
