The Dell Diamond is the home stadium of the Round Rock Express, the Triple-A Minor League Baseball affiliate of the Texas Rangers. The stadium is the place where locals and visitors come to make memories. Since its opening in 2000, it has been a beloved place in the Round Rock community. The city-owned stadium is in partnership, including naming rights, with Dell Computer which is headquartered in Round Rock. The Dell Diamond is an award-winning stadium and has been ranked as one of the top Minor League Baseball parks in the U.S by Baseball America.
As soon as you walk into the stadium, you’ll realize why it has so many accolades. It is a top-of-the-line facility and is constantly being updated and renovated. It has 8,631 permanent seats and an outfield with room for 3,000 additional fans. The stadium was designed with the fans in mind. They wanted guests to be immersed in the game day action. In fact, the seating in the first row behind home plate is actually closer to home plate than the pitcher’s mound. Additional stadium features include: a Daktronics HD LED video board, a state-of-the-art LED concourse and exterior light system, five public stairways, three elevators, Topps tables, and more!
If you want to have an upscale game viewing experience, The Dell Diamond has the Intel Club, which offers expansive views of the stadium in a restaurant-style setting. They also have the United Heritage Center, located down the first baseline, which offers 10,000 square feet of event space, including 5,400 square feet of meeting room space. The space can be converted into three equal size suites and has the use of a full-service kitchen.
The Dell Diamond goes above and beyond with its amenities and activities. They keep everyone entertained and satisfied! Kids love the “Fun Zone,” located in the center field with a basketball court, a 26-foot-high rock wall, a simulated pitching area, and a bungee trampoline. They also have a pool and spa party area beyond the right-field so you can cool off on a hot day. To keep the schedule exciting, they have a promotional schedule with unique days like “Pints and Pups,” where you can bring your pup to the park!
