Five County Stadium, Zebulon

#165 of 260 in Sightseeing in North Carolina
Tourist Spot Arena / Stadium
Five County Stadium is a baseball stadium located in Zebulon, North Carolina; a suburb of Raleigh. It is the home of the Carolina Mudcats of the Carolina League. The ballpark, which was opened in 1991 and extensively renovated in 1999, has a capacity of 6,500.The stadium's name comes from its location - the stadium property is located in Wake County, but it is in close proximity to the intersection of the county lines between Wake, Franklin, Nash and Johnston Counties. Wilson County is also in the general area of the stadium.US-264 passes by the stadium at a generally northwest-to-southeast angle (behind left and center fields), while State Highway 39 skirts the east side of the property (right field). Parking lots surround the field on the other sides.HistoryWhen Columbus Mudcats owner Steve Bryant moved the club to North Carolina in 1991, he wanted a new facility that was deemed to be outside the territories of other minor league clubs in the state (including the Carolina League's Greensboro Hornets, which he also owned) while also being easily accessible by the public. A site was chosen in Zebulon, which was as close to Raleigh as the Mudcats could get without infringing on the territorial rights of the Durham Bulls. To construct the ballpark quickly, the builders opted for metal seating rather than the traditional concrete. The 1999 renovation replaced most of the metal with concrete.

  • Awesome Family Fun! A great Baseball Faculty. They always have something happening in between innings and switch ups! It is well maintained grounds. If you go on a Friday night you are treated to a great Fireworks show!
  • I love bringing my family here to watch America's favorite past time! Admission for a family is much more reasonable then the alternative. We always have such a great time. Oh, and the fireworks display is well worth it!
  • Stadium nice and parking attendant was very kind. Lady taking tickets really needs to be a bit more technologically savvy....she was very confused when scanning my tickets from my phone. She also refused to scan my husband's ticket until he arrived, so I missed the first 10 minutes of the game because of Memorial Day traffic. The chances of someone walking up with exact same name are really very slim, so that seemed a shabby excuse. Kept me from having a five star experience.
  • Last night was my first time at a Mudcats game. We had a get together from my work and I really enjoyed it. Our group sales associate Taylor was great. Hope to be back soon. Take Care--- Steve
  • Awesome. Great game, mudcats won 4 to 3 in bottom of 11th Inning. Great fireworks for about 15 min after game. Friendly people. Easy to park and get out of stadium. We like section loves it. Take 4 people and get out for under $100.
