7171 Auburn Rd.
Utica, MI

Stadium Opened: 2016
Capacity: 4,500
Dimensions: LF- 315 ft.  CF- 395 ft.   RF- 320 ft.
Surface: Natural Grass

Former Names of Ballpark: None


Parking:

  • Parking is free but a good distance from the entrance to the ballpark

 

Seating/Stadium Design:

  • Too much foul territory
  • Box seats are raised a level from the field because there is a restaurant and suites below the grandstand which are field level.
  • Protective netting covers all of the box seats
  • Approximately 2,000 fixed seats
  • There is only a family restroom on the 2nd level so since fans don't want to be bothered with walking downstairs, there is a line for the bathroom and it is not being used for it's intended purpose of being a family restroom. Poor design.
  • Lawn seating available. Right field seating is in the blasting sun. If you get to the ballpark early enough, you can claim a picnic table under the pavillion in left field.
  • Fans have an close-up look at bullpens to see pitchers warming up.
  • No permanent Team Store, just a cart
  • Kids play area and wiffle ball field located in the right field area of the ballpark

 

Food:

  • Trendy Mason Jar drinks
  • Restaurant behind home plate
  • No permanent Concession stands, only portable carts
  • Food was a little pricey

 

 

Atmosphere/Character:

Traditional organ sound effects throughout the ballpark. Each team has their own mascot and they were all pretty active throughout the game, making their rounds for photos. Cute, little ballpark.

 

Diamond Hopper Mascot

 

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

  • New ballpark and new teams, therefore no history.
