Bush Stadium was the name of a former baseball in Indianapolis, Indiana. It was home to the Indianapolis Indians. It was also home to a few Negro League teams as well. The stadium started life as Perry Stadium, named for Norm Perry, the club owner who built it in 1931. It was renamed Victory Field in 1942 in reference to World War II. In 1967 the ballpark was sold to the city of Indianapolis. Later that same year it was renamed for former major league baseball player and Indianapolis native Donie Bush, who had served as president of the Indians from 1955 to 1969.
Various scenes from Eight Men Out were also filmed at the stadium. After the Indians moved to a newer ballpark in 1996, the stadium was turned into a dirt track called 16th Street Speedway. Today, that stadium has been built into lofts with the old stadium lights, and much of the facade still preserved.
