Spectator Sports

The Martinsville Mustangs are a baseball team in the Coastal Plain League, a collegiate summer baseball league. The team plays its home games at Hooker Field at Lou Whitaker Park in Martinsville, Virginia. The Mustangs first started participating in the Coastal Plain League during the 2005 season.

In the 1930’s Jim English built English Field, which hosted professional and amateur baseball in Martinsville for several decades. With financial help from Hooker Furniture, whose main plant is just down the hill from the ball park, English Field was renovated and renamed Hooker Field where it hosted the Martinsville Phillies from 1988-2000. From 2001-2003 Hooker Field was the host of the Martinsville Astros. Hooker Field has been the home of the Martinsville Mustangs since 2005. In January 2024, the field was renamed to "Hooker Field at Lou Whitaker Park." 

Hooker Field is one of the most authentic baseball parks still in use today and is a great place to bring the family on a summer night to enjoy the finest entertainment around. Follow the Martinsville Mustangs on Facebook to see upcoming games and special events!
