Exterior of Hadlock Field, May-2010.
The Exposition Center is visible beyond the right-field line.
From behind the plate on a pleasant Sunday afternoon.
In 1994, with Eastern League expansion, Portland got one of the two slots, and this high school baseball field, squeezed in between the Exposition Center, the football field, and the railroad tracks, was expanded into a professional facility.
The combination worked, as the Sea Dogs have been one of the top-rated clubs in the league year after year. The club just missed drawing 400,000 fans to its 1998 campaign, after leading the league in attendance when they opened four years earlier.
The scoreboard is now inside the Maine Monster.
Hadlock Field is named for Edson B. Hadlock, Jr., who coached the Portland High School baseball team from 1950 to 1978.
