Derks Field was named for John C. Derks, the long-time Salt Lake Tribune sports editor who brought professional baseball back to Salt Lake City. The park was destroyed by fire in 1946, and rebuilt immediately. A 1950 map shows an unroofed grandstand of reinforced concrete. A wooden bleacher section adjoined the grandstand on the 1B side. Beyond it, a steel grandstand with wooden seats extended almost to the RF fence. The field was enclosed by wooden fences. Derks Field was renovated and expanded in 1958; thereafter, it was used for baseball only. The park was demolished in 1993 to make way for Franklin-Quest Field. The catcher faced SE.
Used by: Salt Lake City Bees, Salt Lake City Giants, Salt Lake City Angels, Salt Lake City Gulls, Salt Lake City Trappers
