ABOUT THE BALLPARK
Paul Thomas Sr. Field sits on the campus of Wenatchee Valley College, where it is home to the Knights during the spring and the AppleSox during the summer. The stadium has a capacity of 1,200 and includes both general admission and premium seating. The premium seats make up the lower bowl around home plate and were originally brought in from the Kingdome before its implosion in March of 2000. Prior to the 2012 season, however, the old Kingdome seats were replaced with brand new premium seating. Our general admission seating is comprised of bleacher seats which include an alcohol-free family seating section. Fans are also welcome to bring their own lawn chairs or a blanket to the park and find a seat in the grass along both foul lines.
