The home of the RedHawks features a Maury Wills Museum (the seven-time all star and three-time World Series champion was a Fargo coach and radio analyst) by the ticket office and also pays tribute to Roger Maris with his retired number. Newman Outdoor Field features outfield dimensions akin to old Yankee Stadium where Maris made history in 1961. The native son also has a museum in the city.
