The Hangar

Main entrance to Lancaster Municipal Stadium, Aug-2004.

The park is north of the San Gabriel Mountains, so there is not much to see looking northeast.

Quick Facts: Rating: 3 baseballs
The northernmost city in Los Angeles County is on the edge of Edwards Air Force Base, and “The Hangar” reflects that. They have the shell of an airplane in the parking lot right in front of the main stadium entrance, and the team is known as the JetHawks.

The ballpark reminds me of one of my local favorites, Skylands Park in northwest New Jersey, except that The Hangar appears more finished. The park has deep fences (350 feet down the lines, 410 to center) to combat the prevailing winds, and regular stadium seats rather than bucket seats. Concourse access is limited. There are outbuildings behind the concourse that hold the team offices, locker rooms, and souvenir stands.

San Bernardino Stadium was laid out with an identical floor plan. Another friend has remarked that the main seating bowl is similar to Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter, Fla., and I concur.

Site visitor Stefanie called my attention in July 2005 to the fact that the JetHawks have teamed up with Clear Channel, the radio station and outdoor advertising company, for a marketing deal. As a result, the ballpark became known as Clear Channel Stadium. However, that rights deal has ended and the park is now known by its nickname, The Hangar.
