The current Showalter Field is on land that was once the Aloma Country Club, until the land was purchased by brothers Howard and Sandy Showalter, and was turned into an upscale airpark for flying lessons and charter flights. In 1963 the land was purchased and changed to its present use.[1]

On February 24, 1995, the US Women's National Team defeated Denmark 7-0 in a match held at the venue. Michelle Akers scored a hat trick and Mia Hamm scored two goals.[2]
