College Park

Main entryway to College Park, Aug-2012.

A look into the field from beyond the right-field foul line.

The structure used to hold seating that has since been dismantled; only the lower box seats remain.

Quick Facts:
College Park was the home of Charleston professional baseball for 55 years, in the old South Atlantic League (today’s Southern League) as well as the current SAL. At a game I attended at Riley Ballpark in 2012, a Charleston police officer said, “That was a small-town park. This (referring to Riley) is a big-city park.”

The ballpark is adjacent to Hampton Park, a passive recreation facility, but it also resides in a neighborhood and, as such, parking was very limited. Still, the field is maintained and used by amateur teams to this day.

I was not able to get into College Park on my 2012 visit.
