Known as the ballpark with the West Virginia mailing
address and the Virginia telephone number, it was built to replace
the original wooden Bowen Field ballpark (circa 1939), which burned
to the ground after the 1974 season. Located in the twin cities
of Bluefield, Virginia and West Virginia's City Park, it is home
to both an Appy League team and the local Bluefield College team.
The grandstands seating is one of the more recent upgrades, castoffs
from an Anaheim Stadium renovation. The grandstands were completed
without seating, as the funds ran low, during construction. During
the interim seasons, fans would bring lawn chairs and blankets to
watch the game from the hillside.
