Braves Field was a major league baseball park in the eastern United States, located in Boston, Massachusetts. The stadium was home of the Boston Braves of the National League from 1915–1952, prior to the Braves' move to Milwaukee in 1953.

Braves Field was also home to multiple professional football teams between 1929 and 1948, including the first home of the National Football League (NFL) franchise that became the Washington Redskins. The pro football Braves played at the ballpark in their inaugural season of 1932, then were at Fenway Park for four seasons as the Boston Redskins before the move south to Washington's Griffith Stadium in 1937.

On Commonwealth Avenue at Babcock Street, the baseball field was aligned northeast. Most of the stadium was demolished 60 years ago in 1955, but significant portions of the original structure still stand and make up part of the Nickerson Field sports complex on the campus of Boston University.
