The park looks out upon downtown Rochester as well as a train line.
As a result, it saw its last season of use in 1996, to be replaced the next year by a new, state-of-the-art ballpark. Frontier Field, which gets its name from a telephone company, meets all the standards for the new parks, including sky boxes, seating for over ten thousand, and a fair degree of architectural uniqueness.

Rochester’s fans took to the new park in large numbers during the first season, filling it to 75% of capacity throughout and selling out numerous dates. Townfolk were also treated to a renovation of their hockey arena at the nearby War Memorial in 1997, making it a big year for this rebounding industrial city.
The Rhinos, an A-League soccer team, shared the field with the Red Wings for a number of seasons, but they get their own field in 2005.
It’s worth taking a look at Frontier Field, but plan to arrive early if you want a good parking space.
