League Stadium was home to the Dubois County Dragons who played in the Heartland League (1996-1998) and the Frontier League (1999-2002). From 1996-2001, Huntingburg was the smallest city to host a professional baseball team. After the Dragons franchise moved, League Stadium stood empty in the summers until the Bluff City Bombers of the Central Illinois Collegiate League moved to Huntingburg in 2005. The Dubois County Bombers now play in League Stadium and are the only team outside of Illinois to play in the CICL.
