Categories: Fun & Games, Sports Complexes
Daniel S. Frawley Stadium is a stadium in Wilmington, Delaware. It is primarily used for baseball, and is the home field of the Wilmington Blue Rocks minor league baseball team. The park was originally known as Legends Stadium when it was built in 1993. It was renamed in 1994 for Wilmington mayor Daniel S. Frawley, who had pushed for a return of the Blue Rocks. The field is named separately for Judy Johnson, a local Negro league baseball star.HistoryThe stadium was designed by architect Trish England, head of Design Exchange, who had previously designed dozens of commercial buildings in Delaware. Construction began on November 1, 1992 and was headed by contractor Matthew Minker, a part owner of the team. Mechanical, Plumbing and Electrical systems for the stadium were designed by Richard C. Sokoloski, P.E., who has provided engineering services for most of the commercial buildings along the Wilmington Riverfront. The 20acre stadium site was once part of a Christina River shipbuilding operation. In 1986, the 86acre Dravo Shipyard, with several buildings, was bought by Verino Pettinaro, a local contractor, for a little more than $1 million. Mr. Pettinaro sold 6acre for the stadium to the Delaware Stadium Corporation for $300,000. The Delaware Stadium Corporation, a city and state entity, has owned the stadium since its construction.AmenitiesThe stadium seats 6,404 people. The Blue Rocks have a picnic area in the stadium named the Blue Moose Grill and a gift shop, The Quarry. A formerly abandoned building across the street has been renovated to be similar to Camden Yards. The facility is administered by the Delaware Stadium Corporation.Put Daniel S.

Took the kids here again this summer for a Blue Rocks home game. Tickets were free for completing their summer reading program, so that was a plus. Our tickets got us general admission seating, which ... read more »
Enjoyed a match of Blue Rocks against Poyomac Nationals. Food choice was not enough, but I thought it is still good for such size of stadium. The short distance from the field and the stadium made me ... read more »

I wish every major league stadium could be like Frawley. The Dogfishhead deal on Thursdays is unbeatable. $3 for dogfish and $2 for domestic (read Yeungling and Miller). Tickets are also super cheap if you just want a ball park experience with the friends or family. The team isn't very good, but the atmosphere is on point.
It was great, plus my job took us to the game, AMAZON. Com building in new castle, Delaware. I had a good time, n the food is good, cost a Lil more, but it's worth it. Great plc to hv a good time with friends and family.
It's fun to go watch the game. However the concessions are a little pricey, but that's how it is at every stadium. The forth of July fireworks are amazing though.
It is fun to watch games here, but the boxes could use some updateing. A lot of the chairs in ours were wobbly, and the place is starting to look a bit shabby. I do enjoy that there is a pretty good variety of food and drinks to order.
Been going for years and always a great time here.Stayed in a luxury suite for the first time and had great service. Overall good place to visit while in town.
