Built in 1939, Bank of the James stadium is the fifth oldest ballpark in all of minor league baseball. Formerly called City Stadium, the name changed in 2020 when the city entered an agreement with Bank of the James. The field itself is named after Calvin F. Falwell, the man who brought Carolina League Baseball to Lynchburg in 1966 when he formed and became president of the Lynchburg Baseball Corporation.

The Hillcats home opener is Tuesday, April 12. The season will continue through Labor Day weekend.
