Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
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.

  • Baseball as it should be. Not a bad seat in the stadium. Plenty of parking and a wide variety of food vendors make this a great family-fun outing. Take me out to the ball park.  more »

  • Nothing beats a red wings game on a beautiful Rochester summer evening. Ticket prices are reasonable. Food vendors have a variety and prices are a bit high but to be expected. Parking is highly accessible and you can find free parking within a couple blocks if you try. Enjoy!
  • 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!"
  • Only have ever gone for baseball games and is an excellent venue for families wanting to get that baseball experience. Concerts are also held here sometimes, but have not attended so I have no comment
  • Great field for a trip to the minor leagues / plenty of basic food options / bar for fancier cocktails etc / great seasonal promotions e.g. $1 hot dog nights!
  • Great AAA ballpark. Good food. Great atmosphere. The only thing that keeps this rating from being a 5 out of 5 is the fact that when it comes to playing baseball, the Rochester Red Wings are inconsistent as heck. When they're hot, there is no hotter ticket in town. When they're cold...they're VERY cold, and tickets do not sell as well when the Rochester Red Wings are stone cold in terms of baseball as they sell when the Red Wings are winning. So, even with the good food, parking, atmosphere, and community, Frontier Field is still all about the baseball. And the brand of baseball I see from Frontier Field is too inconsistent for me too like right now.
