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 United Soccer Leagues 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.Rochester-based 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 2010 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.

  • A great ballpark in a nice location. The store is an old firehouse. Parking is good and RPD is always on hand for safe crossings. "Baseball City USA!" After a brief discrepancy with local government, a lease agreement has been reached and the Red Wings (a former farm team for the St Louis Cardinals and Baltimore Orioles, now Minnesota Twins) will continue to fill the stands with additional upgrades.
  • This is a great place to watch baseball as well as other events. I was able to bring my kids to the Nitro Circus here and it was a blast. There wasn’t a bad seat in the house because it could be viewed almost 360°. Plenty of restroom facilities and food vendors makes it an even better experience. Parking wasn’t bad, even though the event was sold out we were able to park a couple blocks away for a reasonable price. Traffic was surprisingly fast moving on the way out as well.
  • For a minor league ballpark, Frontier Field is not a bad place to see a game. It has a nice layout, the grounds are kept pretty clean, and the homage paid to silver stadium throughout is without a doubt a great thing to see. I will say, however, that the last time i was there some of the facade has begun to fade and is becoming sun bleached. It makes it less appealing in that regard, both on the interior and exterior of the field. Otherwise, it is a nice spot to catch a game here and there.
  • 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.
  • Fun every time we go no matter what event or game. Nice choice of food stands and beer. Plenty of large bathrooms.
