Opened in 1989, the original multi-purpose stadium design, with a steep upper deck, lacked the intimacy, charm and fan amenities found in newer minor league ballparks. Completed in 2013, the $43 million renovation completely reinvents the ballpark. The project entailed demolishing everything but the lower seating bowl, playing field and the home clubhouse.
In the new design, all non-premium seating is confined to the lower bowl, with suite and club seating located above the main concourse. In addition to fixed-seating, general admission patrons now have a variety of options to choose from, such as tiered picnic areas and lawn seating. The concessions, restrooms, operations and administrative facilities are all new.
"EwingCole has done a tremendous job on the design of our ballpark renovation. The skill, creativity and leadership they showed are what we needed to make this project a reality. This ballpark renovation is going to transform the experience of attending a game in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, and we couldn’t be more excited about that for our fans."
