Clipper Magazine Stadium is a 6,000-seat baseball park in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Its first regular season baseball game occurred on May 11, 2005, in which the Lancaster Barnstormers lost to the Atlantic City Surf, 4-3.

Clipper Magazine Stadium was honored as the "Ballpark of the Year" by the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball following the end of its 2013 regular season. The award commemorated Barnstormers' staff for their excellence in groundskeeping and stadium operations.Clipper Magazine Stadium also serves as the corporate headquarters for the Atlantic League. The ballpark is named for Clipper Magazine, a local periodical company, which purchased the naming rights for $2.5 million over ten years. This agreement was extended in 2013 through the 2019 season.

    Love going to Clipper Magazine Stadium for Barnstormer games. I have also had the chance to attend an event in one of the suites that was a Pinball Museum. Good food options, and great baseball.  more »

    There are many minor league ballparks around, but only a few have everything a fan needs: easy to get to, free parking, inexpensive tickets & concessions, great seats, and especially.......a great tea...  more »

    Nice stadium. Granted I haven't been to many stadiums so perhaps I'm not the best source. This rating is based on my experience only, not on objective details that stadiums are typically judged by. Expensive food, as you would expect at any larger outing. Great experience nonetheless. Its a great place to go and simply enjoy the people around you, especially if you don't like the game (as myself)

    Very friendly staff, even come around asking to take trash, lots of promotions, fans are pretty friendly even to visiting team fans. A lot of things for adults and kids to do. Food and drink choices are pretty good and prices are very reasonable!

    Nice stadium. Great views from all levels and friendly staff. Parking is free and easy. Be aware, the cheapest alcohol is at the suite level, grab a suite ticket if you ever can!

    Baseball is great, fun between innings and more! Concessions way way way over-priced and of average quality compared even to other venues like this one. No wonder the stadium is often 2/3 empty these days.

    The food is very expensive, also they have areas like the pinball suite that charge a premium to sit in the box seats and play pinball. I understand the charge but I love pinball but my wife and daughter do not, so I either have to go at it alone or pay the extra charge for the rest of my family so we can enjoy the game together. I also don't think they are reaching out to the public enough, the stands were a but empty. I understand the "newness" factor has wore off, but I feel bad for the team to play to an all but empty stadium.
