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.Take a look at our Trenton vacation route planner to schedule your visit to ARM & HAMMER Park and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

Every seat is great and affordable. No better way to see a Yankee player who may be on assignment or coming back from an injury. Every year they are in the race for the top spot

This is a very small ballpark (6150 seats) in a wonderful location right by the Delaware River in Trenton. It's the home field for the Yankees' AA farm club the Trenton Thunder, though on many nights ... read more »
The stadium is great to go to. The prices are low, the food is good, and the team is pretty successful. But the only reason I'm giving this a 3 is while your watching the game, people constantly stand up and it gets pretty hard to watch when people are standing in your view. Otherwise the stadium is great for a ballgame.
My favorite place to go for a ball game. Beer was reasonable maybe night games cost more cause it was a bit more the next time I went at night. 7$ for a craft beer. Food is reasonable for a stadium as well. Now they have a kids play area too for when the kids get bored.
Great minor league ballpark. Easy free parking. Good range of food & beverage choices. Affordable & relaxing!
