Exterior of Bruno Stadium, Jul-2005.
Here, the press and luxury boxes are located in a building completely behind the concourse.
The field is in an otherwise undeveloped corner of a junior college campus.
By the spring of 2001, ground had been broken for the park that would bring baseball back to Troy. The park was dedicated to Senator Bruno in the spring of 2002, and opened that summer for the short-season Tri-City ValleyCats, who had relocated from historic Wahconah Park in Pittsfield. The stadium is on the campus of Hudson Valley Community College, which straddles the line between the City of Troy and the Town of North Greenbush; the baseball stadium is actually in North Greenbush.
The park is the latest to feature a scoreboard with red light-emitting diodes forming the numbers; LEDs, which are also used in modern traffic signal lights, burn brighter and last longer than conventional bulbs.
Otherwise, the park is conventional for its era, featuring 14 rows of seats stretching well along each base line, below a wide main concourse. This produces a comfortable effect which is admired by the locals. There is a picnic area located down the right-field line; in left field, fans of legal age can sit under the scoreboard at the Up the Hill Bar and Grill.
