The view from behind home plate at Journey Bank Ballpark.

The view from down the first base line. The ballpark is located in a residential neighborhood, and houses sit just behind the outfield fence.

The view from down the third base line. The first Little League baseball game ever was played in the area just behind the outfield wall.

The grandstand at Journey Bank Ballpark as seen from the left field corner.

Despite many improvements over the years, the grandstand is still the classic set up. A covered grandstand with mostly bleacher seating, and literal boxed off boxed seats down in front.

The Bowman Field Hall of Fame on the wall of one of the walkways underneath the grandstand.

A large uncovered bleacher section down the right field line, and batting cages in the outfield corner.

One of the biggest improvements to the park in recent years, the picnic deck, sits along the left field line.

The picnic deck juts in and out of foul territory, creating some sharp angles in foul ground.

The outfield and scoreboard. One of the retired numbers to the left of the batter's eye is 59, for former Williamsport Bills' catcher Dave Bresnahan, famous for throwing a potato on the field instead of a baseball to try and fool an opposing runner.
