It is the home venue for the Kannapolis Intimidators, the Class A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox.HistoryWhen the Intimidators franchise began play in 1995, the stadium's construction was not complete. The field and seating areas were ready for the team's first game in April of that year, but the concession stands, restrooms, luxury boxes, and box office were not complete until that winter.

  • This ballpark is going to be replaced with a new stadium in downtown Kannapolis. It seems like much of the upkeep here is only minimal. Food isn't very good and over priced for a small park. They should support families who go to games by offering some lower prices on four packs etc. The staff deserves five stars. The low rating is for the park itself and over priced food/drinks.
  • An older stadium, intensely hot as it's built in a bowl. Facilities are decent, but could use updating. Staff was nice.
  • Small town Single A club that is fun to watch. They have lots of local beer on tap and the food is typical fair with decent prices.
  • Great place to watch some minor league baseball. Very family friendly. Facilities address well maintained but do show their age
  • Small town baseball and good fun for the family on the cheap. Easy to get in and our of in Kannapolis and very affordable tickets and food. Great place for kids and lots of entertainment in between innings. If you like minor league baseball its a good time.
