Bowen Field is a stadium in Bluefield, Virginia, United States. Primarily used for baseball, it is the home field of the Bluefield Orioles minor league baseball team, and of the Bluefield College baseball team. It was built in 1939 and holds 3,000 people.

It is one of the few professional baseball venues that does not sell beer.

The stadium is located in the city park of Bluefield, West Virginia, and is operated by the West Virginia city. However, the park straddles the Virginia-West Virginia state line, and Bowen Field lies completely on the Virginia side of the park.
