AutoZone Park

The centerpiece of the successful 20-acre, mixed-use Memphis Ballpark District, the 14,000-seat AutoZone Park is home to the AAA Redbirds. Red brick, glass and exposed steel truss work recall vintage ballparks and acknowledge the city’s historic warehouse district. Bold graphics and sports signage, engaging artwork, and a large, iconic slugger announce the entry plaza as a recognizable meeting place before games and define a year-round neighborhood park for community events.
