UPMC Park, formerly known as Jerry Uht Park, is a baseball park located in Erie, Pennsylvania. It is the home of the Erie SeaWolves, the city's Minor League Baseball (MiLB) franchise. It hosted its first regular season game on June 20, 1995, with the SeaWolves defeating the Jamestown Jammers following José Guillén's decisive home-run. The park replaced Ainsworth Field, which was built in 1947, and features natural grass and dirt playing field. The concessions include regional specialties such as pepperoni balls, ox roast sandwiches, cheesesteaks, and Yuengling beer. It is part of the Louis J. Tullio Plaza, which also comprises Erie Insurance Arena and the Warner Theatre, all governed by the Erie County Convention Center Authority. The stadium's capacity is 6,000 seats. After the 2016 season, the SeaWolves partnered with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) in a naming rights agreement to rebrand the stadium UPMC Park.In a 2008, the ESPN sports broadcast company ranked the ballpark number five out of ten Minor League ballpark seating arrangements. They especially noted its unique mezzanine level that overlooks the infield along the first-base side. In July 2015, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) also ranked the stadium number five among the most vegetarian-friendly Minor League ballparks.

  • Bought season tickets to the Seawolves buck nights this year. We always enjoy going to the games so we thought this would get us to them a little more often! Always have a good time. My only complaint...  more »
  • We love Erie baseball but ticket prices do not allow for large families to attend very often. Disappointing that beer is cheaper than hotdogs and pop!  more »
