BB&T Ballpark, Winston Salem

BB&T Ballpark is a ballpark in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, that replaced Ernie Shore Field. It is primarily used for baseball, and is the home field of the Winston-Salem Dash minor league baseball team.The ballpark is bounded by Peters Creek Parkway (northwest/west); 1st Street (north); and Green Street (northeast, left-center field). Business I-40 is toward the south/southeast.HistoryIt was originally planned to open for the 2009 season. Various delays pushed it to mid-2009, and then to the 2010 season. Oversights such as the budget, by city planners, were reported to be the cause.The first home game was played on April 13, 2010, against the Potomac Nationals, resulting in a 5-4 loss in 12 innings, before 7,111 spectators. At the end of its first season, the stadium was named Ballpark of the Year by Baseballparks.com.Naming RightsOn February 24, 2010, the Dash announced that Winston-Salem based bank BB&T had signed a 15-year naming rights deal for the new ballpark. BB&T also owns the naming rights for fellow Winston-Salem Entertainment-Sports Complex venue BB&T Field, home to the Wake Forest Demon Deacons football team.This was the second ballpark in the Carolina League sponsored by BB&T. The first was BB&T Coastal Field (now TicketReturn.com Field at Pelicans Ballpark), home to the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. BB&T also sponsors the uptown stadium for the Charlotte Knights which opened in the spring of 2014.

  • Nice facilities, odd entry. We came here for a work event; the facilities were really nice and the staff and food were fantastic. The parking lot signage was a little confusing for a first visit, but not a big deal.
  • Reasonable price for a ticket! Recommended sitting in the lawn, because it's just as fun as having a seat in the stands. Almost caught a baseball and wasn't bothered by any other game-goers. Great place to bring the family, but watch out for pricey for and beer, as expected with a ballpark.
  • Go see a Dash baseball game this season. Especially Thirsty Thursday. Not a bad seat in the house.
  • Here for a birthday party for my grand nephew! Excellent service! Lots of fun!
  • Super nice park right in the heart of the city, great prices and decent parking accommodations. Super friendly staff.
