Wuerfel Park, Traverse City
(4.2/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Wuerfel Park is a 4,660-seat multi-use entertainment facility in Blair Township, Michigan, USA, that hosted its first regular season baseball game on May 24, 2006, as the tenants of the facility, the Traverse City Beach Bums, took on the Kalamazoo Kings. It was built as a new home of the Beach Bums baseball team, the first in Traverse City in 93 years. The ballpark is located on a 26acre site adjacent from the Chums Village commerce park, three miles (5 km) south of Traverse City near the intersection of US 31 and M-37. The PA Announcer is Tim Moeggenburg.The groundbreaking for Wuerfel Park took place in late 2004 and was completed in time for the Beach Bums' inaugural 2006 season. The ballpark's fa├žade resembles that of a resort hotel, a feature unique to baseball stadium architecture. John and Leslye Wuerfel, owners of Wuerfel Resorts and of the Beach Bums, designed Wuerfel Park to reference the region's resort industry and to their own type of business.

  • Went to a Beach Bums game and really enjoyed the evening. Suntan, the mascot, kept everyone amused and had a big basket of tricks and giveaways. Even if you are not a big baseball fan, the Bums are a ...  more »
  • Always a fun evening. Suntan and Sunburn (the bears) keep you entertained the entire game. Very clean and not a bad seat in the house.
