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.

  • Loved it. So many families and friends having a good time, cheering on the team, sometimes dancing, and catching foul balls is always fun. It was so neat to watch a lot of the stadium kids run across the diamond. Also the fire works. Wow!
  • Minor league baseball at it's finest. This is a great night out with the family. Every Friday night game has fireworks. It is the best fireworks show you will ever see.
  • Concessions are overly expensive, $3.50 for a bottle of water on a day that's 100 degrees is just greedy. A year ago it was $1.25 after about passing out due to heat exhaustion I might not go back.
  • I have been attending all the games I can. A great group of people bringing baseball to you. They have great giveaways and family atmosphere. Can't wait for the 2016 season to begin..
  • Great ball park, not a bad seat in the house. Tickets are decently priced.
