Gesa Stadium (formerly Dust Devils Stadium) is a baseball-only stadium in Pasco, Washington, and is the home field of the Tri-City Dust Devils minor league baseball team. It opened in 1995 as Tri-City Stadium for the WBL team Tri-City Posse. The Posse left Tri-City Stadium when the Portland Rockies arrived to become the Tri-City Dust Devils. It was renamed Dust Devils Stadium in 2004, and remained that way until February 13, 2008, when Gesa Credit Union, a local financial institution, announced that they had purchased the naming rights to the facility for a duration of ten years.[1][2]

In early 2007, the stadium underwent a renovation, which a 137-foot sunshade was constructed on the northwest-side of the stadium behind the right-field stands, the purpose being to help shade spectators on the left-field stands from the glare of the setting sun. The reason is that, unlike most ballparks, Gesa Stadium was constructed with the stands facing south, so that fans could have sight of the Kennewick area and the surrounding Horse Heaven Hills, particularly Jump-Off-Joe Butte.
