Five County Stadium, Zebulon

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.
