Veterans Field was voted by ESPN as the #2 high school field in the country and is the only high school TURF field in the state. The complex is made of a synthetic turf playing surface with lights and a 600-seat grandstand.
Naming rights to Veterans Field were purchased by Cambria, a Minnesota company, who chose to name the field to honor all Veterans instead of naming the field after the company name.
Veterans Field is home to the Minnetonka Skippers high school teams, Excelsior Legion baseball teams, Maynard's Mudhens, senior Babe Ruth teams, Minnetonka Millers and the Minnetonka youth football program.
