Hadlock Field, Portland

(4.7/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Hadlock Field is a Minor League baseball stadium in Portland, Maine. It is primarily home to the Portland Sea Dogs of the Eastern League. It is also the home of the Portland High School Bulldogs and Deering High School Rams baseball teams. The stadium is named for Edson J. Hadlock, Jr., a long-time Portland High School baseball coach and physics teacher.History and developmentThe park opened on April 18, 1994 with a capacity of 6,000. A year later, 500 seats were added, boosting capacity to 6,500. Expansion in 1998 increased capacity to 6,860 and in 2002 to 6,975. About 400 seats were added in right field before the start of the 2006 season, and the park currently seats 7,368. Hadlock Field is located between Interstate 295, the historic Fitzpatrick Stadium, and the Portland Exposition Building, the second-oldest arena in continuous operation in the United States. In 2003, when the Sea Dogs affiliated with the Boston Red Sox, a replica Green monster, called the Maine Monster, was added to left field to match the original at the Red Sox' Fenway Park. A replica Citgo sign and Coke bottle were added as well to make the field look even more like Fenway Park.

  • It's a minor league ball park. It has beer and typical ball park food. Being a traditionalist of sort I stick to hot dogs and beer. There is a goofy mascot. Typically a bunch of kids get chosen for a ...  more »

  • First time visiting the field on 07.03.16. Hot, sunny day. Beautiful for baseball. Enjoyed the seats, the interactions staff made with the kids. After just about every inning, there would be a kids activity which is cool. Had the chance to see a past President of the US enjoy a baseball game, the elder Bush. Fireworks display after the game was amazing, very well put together! Hoping to return for another game this season!
  • As a member of a baseball-loving family, I've been to many, many ballparks. Hadlock is among the best; it's old time feel and layout is balanced by modern conveniences and facilities. The game are punctuated by fun activities for kids and the mascots are s highlight of any trip. My two boys love coming here for a fun afternoon or night out. Lots of parking options nearby as well as post or pre game food choices.
  • Fun times great atmosphere. Buy the $26 seat and get free food. What you buy at the stadium vendors and what you would normally pay is worth more than the $26. Best seats in the house. Bring a hat and glasses!!
  • Great place to watch a baseball game. Decent snack bar. Every seat is a good view.
  • It's a beautiful,clean ball park. The rest rooms would please a germophobe like me. Good beer. Different kinds of fast food,some of it good. Nice souvenirs. Don't bring in water bottles or metal objects much larger than your keys. You will be nicely asked to bring them to the office where they may be picked up when you leave. Choose seating carefully if you love the sun or not. Sit westerly if not. you will get some to lots of sun otherwise. It's a fun place for the kids, entertainment between innings and sound effects as well as snippets of rock music. For me the game was incidental (not a big sports fan)but I had fun anyway with my family.
