MY TAKE ON THE PARK

A view of the field

NESTLED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HILL IN AN EVER EXPANDING AREA OF OFFICE COMPLEXES SITS LACKAWANNA COUNTY STADIUM. THE SIMILARITIES TO VETERAN'S STADIUM ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE, FROM THE OUTSIDE APPEARANCE TO THE FIELD DIMENSIONS, PLAYERS WOULD ONLY KNOW FROM THE SKYLINE THAT THEY WERE IN A DIFFERENT PLACE WHEN CALLED UP TO THE PARENT CLUB. TODAY, LACKAWANNA IS A SCENIC PARK THAT IS THE STANDARD CONCRETE 10,000 SEAT TRIPLE A PARK. THE SCENERY HERE IS BEYOND THE OUTFIELD FENCE WHICH IS A VIEW OF THE WOODS WITH VARIOUS ROCKS PEEKING OUT THROUGH THE TREES.

Looking down the right field line

FRIENDLY TICKET TAKERS WELCOME YOU THROUGH THE GATES AND INTO THE DARK CORRIDOR THAT RUNS BEHIND THE LOWER SECTION OR TO THE RAMPS THAT LEAD YOU TO THE UPPER DECK. YOU CANNOT SEE THE GAME FROM EITHER LEVEL WHILE ON LINE AT THE CONCESSIONS.

THE ONLY CHANGE THAT HAS GONE ON INSIDE THE PARK SINCE 1993 IS THEY ARE BUILDING WHAT LOOKS LIKE A PICNIC AREA OVER THE VISITORS BULL PEN

BOTH UPPER AND LOWER DECKS HAVE CHAIRS RUNNING ALL AROUND EXCEPT FOR THE LAST 2 SECTIONS ON EACH SIDE OF THE LOWER LEVEL WHERE THE GENERAL ADMISSION SEATS ARE METAL BENCHES. THE UPPER DECK IS FAR OFF THE FIELD, FOR MINOR LEAGUE STANDARDS, AND IS VERY STEEP.

Looking at the Stadium Club from LF

THE FOOD HERE IN SCRANTON IS OK, STANDARD HOT DOG AND PIZZA CHOICES AS WELL AS VARIOUS VENDORS WITH SPECIALTY NUTS AND CARNIVAL SELECTIONS.
 
 FACING RIGHT FIELD IS THE STADIUM CLUB RESTAURANT WHICH SERVES GOOD FOOD WITH A VIEW OF THE GAME. THE CLUB IS OPEN FOR LUNCH DURING THE WEEK.

PARKING HERE IS NOW FREE, THEY UPPED THE TICKET PRICES $1 AND ELIMINATED THE PARKING .. I NEVER LIKED PAYING $1 TO PARK ON GRAVEL.
THE SCOREBOARD IN LEFT CENTER IS 2 OR 3 YEARS OLD WITH A GOOD LOOK TO IT AND IS WRIGLEY FIELD QUICK.


A TRIP TO LACKAWANNA COUNTY IS AN ENJOYABLE ONE WHICH CAN BE EASILY COMBINED WITH A COUPLE OF  OTHER TEAMS. LESS THAN 2 HOURS FROM SCRANTON ARE BINGHAMTON (METS) AND THE READING PHILLIES.
