The Wildcats Baseball Stadium or Paradise Field as it is known in-game is the southeast event destination located in Downtown Paradise and is overall a fairly popular location among offline as well as online events. It is also known for being one of the large open spaces in Paradise City like the Eastern Shore Airfield thanks to the fact that the playing field is accessible. Finally, racers and players engaged in Stunt Run events will race through or around this building for the shortcuts it offers or the discoveries it holds.

The finish line for races, however, is not located in the stadium itself and is materialized by the walkway that spans diagonally over the Webster Avenue and 1st Street intersection.

Shortcuts Edit

Two shortcuts which offer protection or a more direct route exist to help racers reach the Wildcats Baseball Stadium.

From Webster Avenue Edit

Wildcats Baseball Stadium (night)

Since the Bikes update, the Baseball Stadium's projectors light up at night.

If no speedy shortcuts can be used when racing down the famous Avenue, several sheltered paths do exist to offer protection against the relentless attacks of the Marked Man rivals. On both sides, the player can choose to drive on the sidewalks behind the concrete separators that act as shields against slams and shunts, even though this path is somewhat hazardous due to the straight walls that surround the narrow path.

From Angus Wharf Edit

When originating from Angus Wharf and heading southbound, racers should always go through the Waterfront Gas 5 station located on the right since it not only cuts the final bend of the road, but yields a full Boost fill for the final 100-yard stretch. This shortcut can also be used for protection when fighting for survival during a Marked Man event.

Resemblance Edit

Wrigley Field sign

The real-life stadium sign shows how developers were inspired by the Wrigley Field.

Without doubt, the Paradise Field is heavily influenced by the Chicago Cubs Wrigley Field with slight architectural modifications made for gameplay. The most evident common element excluding the name is the sign, inspired by the iconic real-life Wrigley Field sign, sporting the same red color, text styling and line patterns.

The fact that the Paradise Field is so heavily inspired by the Wrigley Field also shows how the whole Downtown area of Paradise City is influenced by the city of Chicago.

Notes Edit

  • The sandy part of the field shares the same properties as other sandy areas in Paradise City and as such, vehicles have less traction over that terrain.
  • The signification of the date mentioned by the Stadium's sign is unknown.
  • The Wildcats Baseball Stadium is one of the few full structures visible on the Paradise City map.
  • The stadium can be seen from the Big Surf Island construction site with its southwest corner floating above the ocean.
