The large building in the middle of the upper deck housed the pressbox, as well as a large restaurant on the top level that was open to the public during games.

The most distinctive feature of the stadium was the stripes of colored sets in the grandstand, designed by Charlotte-based fashion designer Alexander Julian.

The luxury boxes are individual rooms sitting on top of the upper deck, accessible from the concourse and with general admission seating in front of them.

The berm and picnic area on the third base side. The stadium was built with room to expand, with the hope that Charlotte would land a major league team. Though that never happened, the team did upgrade from AA to AAA in 1993.

Banners on the walls of the upper concourse celebrate championships won by all former Charlotte baseball teams.

A water tower behind the ballpark is painted to look like a baseball.
