The original stadium was built in 1991 to house a
relocated Southern League franchise. The current facility was fruits
of a two-year, $15 million phased project completed in 2000. The
stadium is named after the counties (Franklin, Johnston, Nash, Wake,
and Wilson) that provided the financing for the latest evolution
which initially grew out of an North Carolina tobacco field. For the 2012, a
Carolina League team moved in to call Five County Stadium home, as the Southern
League franchise relocated to Pensacola, Florida.
