Formerly known as "the basin," it was used in the 1800s as a source of water for steam locomotives. In 1908, a small group of railroad employees cleared the space for a baseball diamond. In 1936, the city purchased the field. In the 80's, it was at risk of being torn down to make way for a parking lot. But it is now well-maintained, in part thanks to the "Friends of Cardines Foundation" and the work of the Newport Recreation Department. Cardines field underwent renovations in 2002.
Many baseball greats are said to have played there. Rumor has it that Babe Ruth even graced the stadium.
