Kokernot Field was built by a local rancher for his semi-pro baseball team, and the exterior features stone quarried from his ranch, giving the park its distinctive look.

A plaque next to the ticket window celebrates the original semi-pro Alpine Cowboys, and the metalwork features baseballs and the Kokernot Ranch's "06" brand.

The small concourse underneath the grandstand features a terracotta roofed concession stand.

The park features a deep center field, where the stadium's exterior stone wall curves in front of the flag pole.
