110 East 10th St.
Erie, PA

Stadium Opened: 1995
Capacity: 6,000
Dimensions: LF- 312 ft.  CF- 400 ft.   RF- 328 ft.
Surface: Natural Grass

Former Names of Ballpark: None


Parking:

  • Parking for games is in various lots throughout the city, the civic center parking garage, and on-street parking. In 2015, pricing varied depending on location, but most were around $5.

 

Seating/Stadium Design:

  • Due to space constraints, the park has a unique design. There are two levels of seating on the first base side and the two grandstands are completely separate.
  • Picnic Area and Beer Garden
  • Club Seats (seats at a counter)
  • Kids play area

All of the unpainted concrete makes the ballpark feel a lot older than it is, this is one of my biggest complaints about the actual structure of the stadium. This is especially noticeable on the facing of the beer garden. Maybe they can put a ribbon board (videoboard) there some day to spruce it up.

Food:

  • "Burgers & Brews", "South of the Border", 'Smith's Sausage Shack" specialty stands as well as traditional concession stands
  • 2015 prices are in the photo below.

Atmosphere/Character:

The ballpark has a lot of character to it since it is fit into the city on a small lot. It's not a cookie-cutter type park. The focus was on baseball and there weren't a whole lot of promotions and contests throughout the game. The team mascot is a seawolf named "C. Wolf".

 

 

 

Recognition of Team's History and/or MLB Affiliate:

  • The Road to the Show sign in concourse
  • Championship banners on press box
  • Banners honoring former players in the concourse area.
