The Pulaski Yankees play at Calfee Park. Calfee Park opened in 1935 and has a capacity of 2,500 fans. A number of houses that surround the park have good views of games.

The park had major renovations prior to the 1999 season, with a new grandstand behind the plate and along the first-base side as well as "open-air suites" (railed-in areas with picnic tables) farther down on the first-base line. A new scoreboard was also installed.
