Arm & Hammer Park, formerly known as Mercer County Waterfront Park, is a stadium in Trenton, New Jersey. It is the home baseball park for the Trenton Thunder of the Eastern League. The official seating capacity is 6,150.HistoryThe park was built for the 1994 season, although it opened several weeks late due to a rough winter that hampered construction. The sod also was unable to take properly that season, and the field did not properly drain, leading to rainouts on evenings where the sun had been out since noon. The drainage problem was fixed in 1995.The stadium's original name was "Mercer County Waterfront Park" when it opened in 1994. "Samuel J. Plumeri, Sr. Field" was added to the original name in 1999 by Trenton Thunder owner, Joe Plumeri (Chairman and CEO of Willis Group Holdings). Samuel J. Plumeri, Sr. was Joe Plumeri's father. In November 2012, the New Jersey-based Arm & Hammer purchased the ballpark's naming rights and will maintain its sponsorship through 2032.In June 2014, the park hosted the first-ever, gold– and bronze–medal games in baseball for the Special Olympics USA National Games.Attendance RecordsArm & Hammer Park set a record for game attendance on July 3, 2011, when the Thunder played the Altoona Curve. The game had the fortune of falling on the Independence Day holiday weekend, as well as featuring an injury rehabilitation appearance by Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees. The official attendance for the game was 9,212.

  • Great baseball atmosphere. No matter where you sit you have a good down on the field feeling. The food gives you a local hometown flavor also. Try the porkroll, you will love it.  more »

  • One of my all-time favorite ball parks right on the banks of the Delaware River. The double A affiliate of the New York Yankees play their games here. The food stands sell the best burgers, steaks and pulled pork sandwiches in the league. My fav is the double pork roll with cheese. They have a excellent selection of beers and offer happy hour prices on certain days. Plenty of parking for a small fee and the River Line train is only 4-5 blocks away. The views of the river are spectacular and every seat in the park affords the fan a great baseball experience. Weekend games are pretty much a near sellout so order your tickets online to ensure a seat.
  • Great small ballpark. Intimate environment and easy to park. Food and drinks are somewhat major league overpriced. Tickets are cheap though. Great date night or family night
  • I love my local ballpark but they've got to do something about the ridiculous general concession lines. You can arrive 45 minutes before the game and still miss the first inning standing in line. Line envy is rampant, "Go get in that one and I'll stay in this one and we'll see who gets to the front first," is a common practice. They should set it up like airports, a single cordoned-off line where the next person in line goes to the next available register. This would also help foot traffic get by during crowded games. Otherwise, there's not a bad seat in the house and I love coming here a few times a season.
  • Wonderful up and close place to see a ball game. Very family friendly.
  • We've done a bunch of company outings here, and it's always a fun time! The concessions food is not too bad, though the buffet is not the best. It's usually a fun way to spend an afternoon or evening. I've also been in one of the suites a few times, and that's a pretty fun way to experience the game as well for someone who's not crazy about baseball. The suite is a nice spot to get to catch up with friends and such, and there's free popcorn and water!
