The football pressbox at the top of the main covered grandstand. The stadium was built to host football as well as baseball and the center of the main grandstand is down the first base line.


The baseball pressbox sits behind home plate, just outside of the covered part of the grandstand.


Bleachers run down the entire third base side of the stadium, a setup more conducive to football, though the stadium has seen much more use for baseball over the years.


A much shorter bleacher section sits on the first base side, giving the overall seating bowl an unbalanced "J" shape.


Concrete seating boxes are built into the bottom of the grandstand, with wooden bleachers running along the top.


Some of the seating at World War Memorial Stadium has fallen into disrepair since the minor league Bats left in 2005. Some chairbacks still bear marks of former Bats season ticket holders.


The wooden roof over the main grandstand.


Boarded up concession stands sit on the concrete walkway between the stands and the dugouts.


The tight concourse runs underneath the seating bowl.


The right field wall pushes in toward the field of play, creating a corner in right center.


The small line scoreboard sits beside the batter's eye in center field.
