Nickname: The Lack
Opened: April 26, 1989 as Lackawanna County Stadium
Address: 235 Montage Mountain Road. Moosic, PA. 18505
Cost: $25 million
Construction Materials: Concrete and Steel
Sports: Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons AAA-Phillies minor league baseball, amateur events such as High School, College and semi-pro football; High School Soccer and field hockey; and both professional and High School band competitions. The parking lot of the stadium has also been used for events such as 3 on 3 basketball, flea markets, car shows and craft shows.
For baseball games, it has the same dimensions as Veterans Stadium, since the Philadelphia Phillies' former AAA-affiliate Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons played at the stadium. It was believed that having the Phillies' top prospects playing in a similar ballpark would help them adjust better to the big leagues when they were called up. Veterans Stadium was enclosed all around, while Lackawanna Stadium is not. Furthermore, 16 years after Lackawanna County Stadium was opened, the Phillies have moved into a new ballpark, and SWB has affiliated with the New York Yankees, making this stadium a living relic. It is probably the last of the cookie-cutter stadiums, which dominated the major leagues in the 1960s-1970s.
Hosted the 1995 AAA All-Star Game.
