Opened as the Jamestown Municipal Stadium, it inherited
the College Stadium moniker when the Jamestown Community College
was built just beyond the outfield walls in 1961. The current name
is a 1997 tribute to Russ Diethrick, a long-time supporter of organized
baseball in the area. The ballpark has kept up-to-date with frequent
renovations and additions to the original grandstands.
