Former Names of Ballpark: None
- Parking is free outside the ballpark
No access out of the seating bowl at the top like some other older parks
Kids swingset on a cement section of the ballpark. Seems a little unsafe to me.
Concourse area is basically behind the grandstand
All seats are under the covered grandstand
Dugouts are far from home plate
Seats do not have cupholders
manual scoreboard/small videoboard
As in most covered grandstand ballparks, some views are obstructed
Ballpark has lots of character and charm
- Food was pricey for poor quality (see the burnt up hot dog below)
- Giant Brownie Bowl Sundae- $5
Clear PA system with a classic sounding announcer. The female staff members wore the Racine Belles uniforms. Nice touch. The mascot's name is Evan the Otter.
Scenes from "A League of their Own" were filmed here and the Racine Belles ad was left on the wall. Very cool!
