Tinker Field is a stadium in Orlando, Florida. It is primarily used for baseball, and was the home field of the Orlando Rays minor league baseball team before they moved to The Ballpark at Disney's Wide World of Sports in 2000. It is located directly adjacent to the western side of the Citrus Bowl, at 1610 West Church Street, and holds 5,100 people.

The stadium was built in 1914, and is named after baseball Hall of Famer, Joe Tinker. On May 14, 2004, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. The Washington Senators/Minnesota Twins used Tinker Field as their spring training home until after the 1990 season.

Tinker Field may be refurbished or redeveloped possibly as part of the refurbishment of the Citrus Bowl. Although some plans for "Downtown Master Plan 3", a redevelopment plan for that section of Orlando, suggest tearing down Tinker Field, such plans would prove difficult given its status on the National Register of Historic Places.[1]
