Frontier Field, Rochester

4.5
Frontier Field is a baseball stadium located at One Morrie Silver Way in downtown Rochester, New York. The park opened in 1996, replacing Silver Stadium in northern Rochester, which had been home to professional baseball in Rochester since 1929. Although the stadium was built for baseball, Frontier Field has had several tenants in numerous sports, including the Rochester Raging Rhinos of the USL First Division from 1996 to 2005, the Rochester Rattlers of Major League Lacrosse from 2001 to 2002, and the Rochester Red Wings of the International League since 1997. The ballpark seats 10,840 spectators for baseball.Telecommunications company Frontier has held the naming rights to the ballpark since its opening in 1996. Frontier Field hosted the Triple-A All-Star Game on July 12, 2000.HistoryGround was broken on Frontier Field in November 1994. The stadium, designed by Ellerbe Becket, opened on July 11, 1996. Although Frontier Field was always intended to be primarily a baseball facility, it was constructed to be able to accommodate the Rochester Rhinos soccer team as well.After the Rhinos left Frontier Field for PAETEC Park in 2005, the Rochester Red Wings became the sole full-time tenant at Frontier Field. As a result, the Wings made upgrades to the park to make the stadium a better baseball facility. The first notable upgrade, the installation of a new 24ft by 32ft video scoreboard in left field, was completed in time for the 2006 season. Originally, a new grass turf was to be installed following the 2006 season to replace the grass that has been beat up over the years from extensive use in baseball, soccer, and lacrosse. No such replacement was made for 2007, but work commenced following that season and a new grass surface with an improved drainage system was installed prior to the 2008 season.

  • I rarely give 5 stars but as far a price, amenities and atmosphere this place has it all. Great place to catch a baseball game, not a bad sweet in the house, plenty of food and drink options and the red wings do a great job with promotions always keeping it fresh. One year soon I will get season tickets.
  • Great place to watch baseball. Been going to games since it opened and continue to enjoy the trip. I recommend the local brewery Rohrbachs, sold at stands in the concourse. Hard to get a bad seat as there are few obstructed sight lines. A regional draw, some out of town folks worry about crime but I've never had a problem or witnessed one. I will continue to go for years to come.
  • A friend had a birthday party in one of the suites. It's a nice stadium.
  • Good experience and good clean facilities for the Alzheimer's Association Walk on 10/21. Field looked awesome...can't wait to come to baseball game!!
  • Great family fun, great staff, a must see for a Rochester visitor who want a good baseball experience both professional and novice fans of all ages. As a perk the stadium has a peanut/allergy free section for all to experience the traditional American pass time. Negative - food pricing is on the higher side.
