#10 of 17 in Things to do in Charleston
Appalachian Power Park is the current home field for the West Virginia Power, a minor league baseball team in the South Atlantic League. The Power are a Class-A affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates. It also serves the baseball programs of Marshall University, and the University of Charleston. The stadium, which opened in April 2005, is located in the East End of Charleston, West Virginia. It seats 4,500 fans and cost $25 million to build. The dimensions of the field are as follows: left field - 330 feet, center field - 400 feet, right field - 320 feet.HistoryAdditionally, the park hosts the West Virginia state high school baseball championships. Since 2006, it has been the home field for Marshall conference games, because the school does not have an adequate baseball facility on its campus located 50 miles (80 km) away in Huntington, West Virginia. It plays its non-conference games at the Kennedy Center Field near campus and at Linda K. Epling Stadium in Beckley, West Virginia. When West Virginia University moved from the Big East Conference to the Big 12 Conference its on campus baseball field likewise did not meet league standards, and WVU played its conference games there until a new taxpayer funded stadium was built on campus.

  • I have been to a lot of games and I always have a great time. If you like baseball you will love it. And they have so much other entertaining things in between innings. Tickets prices are great but like with everywhere else you pay more for everything at the concession stand but the prices aren't to unreasonable. It really is a fun, entertaining, affordable famliy outing.
  • Clean park. awesome , kind staff who appear to be true baseball fans. good food for the price. daily themes for the fans, like family night, fireworks night, etc. clean seats and courteous fans.
  • Nice way to spend a Summer night or Sunday Afternoon. The staff was super welcoming and took the time to talk with me and the usher returned many times to make sure i was enjoying my experience. Food was marginal and options were limited.
  • A very nice place to go with the family. I deff recommend it to everyone! Great atmosphere! The food is alittle expensive. But they have to make money also. But the food is great! Love this place!
  • Great field! Love baseball! These guys know how to do it!
