Home of the Prairie Fire baseball team, Blodgett Field is a symmetrical field that contains its own internal sprinkler system. It measures 310 feet down the lines and 400 feet in center field.

Blodgett Field is named after Thomas H. Blodgett, 1899 Knox graduate and former Knox trustee, who donated the funds for its construction in 1963.

The original soil composition of the field was identical to that of Wrigley Field, but has since been changed to allow for better drainage and can now host games just hours after all but the heaviest rains.
