Attraction details
Owner description: Very fun attraction in the Big Bend, TX region. The professional minor league baseball team plays in historic Kokernot Field, a scaled down replica of Wrigley Field.

Patterned after Wrigley Field this history ball field - Kokernot Field is well worth a visit. Well kept up, the Alpine Cowboys play here from late May to early August. However, for the history, the beautiful field is a place to see.

Thanks to a long ago Texas Monthly article I had Kokernot Field on my bucket list. Worth it, but for different reasons.

Touted as the most beautiful ballpark in America, Kokernot Field may fall a bit shy in beauty, but it is absolutely everything a baseball park should be.

It took me a while to figure out why this place felt so good. Scale. The field is, if course, full size 90 ft.between bases perfection. But the stands don't feel scaled down, they feel like a slice. If you've ever been a season ticket holder at a big league park you know the feeling: familiarity. Walking in your gate, up your ramp, to your row, where you nod to acquaintances around your seat. You get that at Kokernot in just one visit, a perfect slice of Wrigley, or Fenway or Dell Diamond.

Except this fifty dollar a week Pecos League ball, so when a home town kid homers you pass the hat, and when you buy a beer it is served by the Assistant GM, and when you ask the ticket taker if it's OK to park right smack in front of the gate he says "sure, if you don't mind foul balls" and you don't until the first foul ball sends a few kids scurrying out of the stands, and the park, and one returns triumphantly brandishing a ball.

A slice of baseball, cut out of a big league legend, tasting of Little League.

We were staying at the Lost Alaskan RV park, which is only 5 minutes from the field, so why not. We saw the O6 Alpine Cowboys play the White Sands Pup-fish. Beautiful evening to relax and enjoy great seats - I think the seats are all 6.00 each. Refreshing change from the crowds, traffic, and expense of a major league game. They are named the O6 Alpine Cowboys, after the owners O6 Ranch, if I am not mis-taken.

I have been to a lot of ball parks and this is my favorite. The story of how a local rancher built the stadium in the 40's and started his own team because he loved baseball makes this place endearing. Low ticket prices, free parking, cheap beer and eats. Best way to spend a summer afternoon.

Beautiful field, great prices and all seats have great view. The players were much better than expected and everyone was friendly. People would stop and visit with us and the ball players on both teams were playing with the kids and having a good time. It was like baseball should be. One of the visiting players summed it up when I asked him how he was doing when he said "it is a beautiful day and I get to play baseball".
