Barbagallo Ballpark is the home of baseball in WA which is located at Tom Bateman Reserve, Thornlie.
It was built in 2004, and has the seating capacity of 1,200 and standing room for a further 4,500. This is the first baseball-exclusive stadium in Perth since the demolition of Parry Field in the mid-1990s.
Barbagallo Ballpark, then known as Baseball Park underwent further expansion in 2007. The upgrades provided increased corporate facilities and public seating.
In 2010, the facility underwent further upgrades during the off-season before the start of the 2010/2011 ABL season. The upgrades included a permanent terrace bar, a batter's eye in center field and an electronic scoreboard. The outfield fence was also brought in to help fix the shortage of home runs that the ballpark experienced in previous Claxton Shield seasons.
Furthermore, an enclosed member's area, numbered seats, an improved playing surface, upgraded corporate boxes, fencing around the terrace bar and a staff office building were apart of the improvements that were made around the ballpark.
Prior to the 2010/2011 ABL season, Baseball Park was renamed to Barbagallo Ballpark, the home of the 2011 ABL Champions, the Alcohol Think Again Perth Heat.
