Sicks' Stadium, also known as Sicks' Seattle Stadium, opened in 1938 and was the second ballpark built on the site. Dugdale Park was built there in 1913 and housed the Seattle Indians (PCL). It completely burned down after a 4th of July celebration in 1932. The team played at Civic Field (located near where Key Arena is today) until the new ballpark was built. The Sicks' Stadium site is now home to a Lowe's Home Improvement Warehouse (formerly Eagle Hardware and Garden). There is a glass display case inside the store which shows some memorabilia from the Rainiers and Pilots.
