Originally designed as a dog track and used as a multipurpose stadium, almost all of the seating at the park is in a long grandstand that runs down the first base line.


A very small sections of bleachers provides the only seating on the third base side of the stadium.


The press box sits in a tall building behind home plate, and a large net protects the street behind the stands from foul balls.


A few benches behind the backstop provides the only seating behind home plate.


A large concrete platform stands behind the right field fence, and fans can set up their own chairs there overlooking the outfield.
