Community Field

The enhanced entryway (and unenhanced parking lot) at Community Field, Aug-2015.

The configuration of the main grandstand lends a homey feel.

Quick Facts: Rating: 3 baseballs
Community Field is a serviceable old place. There arenít many stadium seats here, nor are there many other amenities that characterize the newer parks. But thatís OK. The place works.

The seating area behind the plate now features an overhang that helps keep at least some patrons dry. It also shields some of the concession areas. Most of the park is exposed, however, and the fans donít seem to mind. This is a nice, pleasant place to watch a ball game.

Unlike many other Minor League teams and parks, the Bees are community-owned. A non-profit organization, Burlington Baseball Association, owns the franchise, and an associated group, Friends of Community Field, accepts donations for maintenance of the ballpark. This has kept Burlington represented in the minors for all but three years since the end of the second World War.
