Voted Best Pioneer League Ballpark
by Ballpark Digest (2016)
League: Pioneer League
Ballpark: Dehler Park (2008)
Location: Billings, Montana
"MTN Sports told you that the Pioneer League's Billings Mustangs landed 5-time Major League Baseball manager Jim Riggleman this off-season, along with a pair of highly-regarded coaches with big league experience. So, how did team owner Dave Heller pull off one of the great all-time coaching moves in small market baseball? Riggleman is not Heller's only eye-popping catch. He brings along MLB buddies Dan Radison (pitching coach) and Mike Toomey (hitting coach) who has a sharp eye for players. "Mike is in the Scouting Hall of Fame, for goodness sake," Heller marveled. "How often do you get to bring a Hall of Famer to Billings? How cool is that?" Heller iced the deal with a heartfelt welcome."That was nice to hear, that you're wanted someplace," Riggleman said. Because Billings is now an independent team, meaning big league clubs no longer send players this way, the Mustangs have to find their own. Heller's hires should give Billings a supreme edge in fielding a winner this summer."

"I can't imagine summer in Billings without the Mustangs. Kicking back with some friends at the stadium on a warm night, drinking beer and eating Frosty Malts, watching the sun set on the Rims, and cheering on our team."

"Dehler Park has repeatedly and consistently been named the best Rookie League park in the country. Dehler Park is not only picturesque with its Rims backdrop, its facilities for fans and players are second to none. There are many AA and AAA ballparks that are not quite as well maintained."

"Over the past two years, the Mustangs have signed a new ten-year lease with the City of Billings, extended its unique relationship with the Mustangs Boosters, made improvements to concession stands, built a new picnic area in left field and, this season, added a new beer stand behind home plate. The City of Billings and the Mustangs are also partnering on a new state-of-the-art Daktronics videoboard, 20 feet tall by 36 feet wide, which will be installed prior to the first game of the season."

"Main Street Baseball is known to have sweetened baseball fans’ experience with helicopter drops of candy and marshmallows. Here’s hoping their excitement is contagious. Their passion for Minor League Baseball is matched with imagination for creating a great experience for fans and families."

"Heller sees things differently than most. His imagination isn’t confined to out-of-the-box big. His is out-of-the-ballpark big."

"The Mustangs as you formerly knew them were Nehi grape soda, rotary phones and your grandmother’s comfortable Buick with the AM/FM radio. The new Mustangs under Main Street Baseball will be coconut water, the iPhone6 and a Lexus with Sirius XM."
-Billings Gazette, December 6, 2014
"The Mustangs' owners have worked hard to make Billings the best Rookie League experience in all of minor league baseball."
-Billings Gazette, December 23, 2016
"Main Street Baseball’s extensive Minor League experience will ensure that it gets the best possible deal on any future naming rights for the park, the field, a zip line or other feature. That revenue will support continuation of Billings’ professional baseball tradition."
