Frontier Field, Rochester
(4.4/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Attending a Red Wings baseball game at Frontier Field is a special treat. It has a family atmosphere and there are many volunteers who help to make your visit feel special.

  • Frontier field doesn't have a bad seat in the house, but if you're concerned at all even the best seat is $12. AAA baseball showcases extremely strong talent, obviously, and spending time outside watching a game in the summer is a fantastic experience. Frontier also has a number of different food options outside of the standard hot dog/peanuts thing, from Red Osier roast beef to Angus burgers and many others.
  • Love watching Wings games here. $6 to park in the adjacent lot. The food and drinks are really good and reasonably priced and tickets for the best seats are under $15. Great minor league ballpark.
  • It's a sporting stadium. You have to REALLY like sports. More importantly, you have to carefully balance your emotions/medications for the drive in and parking.
  • Great Ballpark, 3rd base side offers great view of the city. Vendors are great (I recommend checking out the carts rather than the park concessions unless you've got a deal.) One of the best ways to spend a summer evening in Rochester.
  • Love watching Red Wings Games! I will say as with every stadium the prices are pretty high at the concessions
