Orignially designed as a dog track, and used as a multipurpose stadium, almost all of the seating in the ballpark is on a large grandstand running down the first base line.

A very small bleacher section provides the only seating on the third base side of the stadium.

The pressbox sits in a tall building behind home plate.

A few benches behind the backstop are the only seating in the area behind home plate.

A concrete platform stands behind the right field fence. Fans can set up their own seats and view the game from the outfield.
