The stadium was built to replace a wooden ballpark
that had twice burned (1939 & 1944). It is named for Watt Powell
who financed part of the construction for the park. Teams from the
Central League, American Association, International League and South
Atlantic League have called it home. The Sally League franchise
moved downtown to
Appalachian Power Park
while Watt Powell was demolished in 2005.
