About Home Fields
In 1999, Ken Small founded Home Fields in Atlanta, GA and went to market with 11 Southern stadiums. Home Fields now has approximately 120 different college football and basketball stadiums, pro football, baseball fields, and select racetracks. All are available in four lengths/sizes: 9″, 13″, 19″, or 34″. All come with lights which flood each field and bring it to life. The smallest stadium, our 9″, is also our original size and is available in a non-lighted version.
Ken has always had a penchant for stadiums. In 7th Grade Wood Shop class in Sterling, IL, 100 miles west of Chicago, everyone made the standard bookcase as their final project. Ken made the Georgia Tech football stadium.

A graduate of the University of Miami, he was a sports writer at the Miami Herald for five years and Editorial Promotion Director for two.

As a former sports writer, Ken takes great pride in the history he writes for the back of each stadium. He calls it the intrinsic value of the stadium. Some fans call it the best part.
Ken was lured to Atlanta when soccer was expanding as Marketing Director of the Turner-owned Atlanta Chiefs, sharing office space with the Braves at Atlanta-Fulton County stadium.
“I grew up the number one White Sox fan in America,” he says. “And when they tear down your favorite ballpark, they take a piece of your heart with it. I wanted something on a shelf in my office that I could look at every day and recall my good times at Comiskey Park. And I wanted the Orange Bowl alongside it. When I’m in my office now, I can mentally be in my favorite stadiums.”
