Pensacola Bayfront Stadium
After just one season, Pensacola Bayfront Stadium is now considered one of the most premier facilities in Minor League Baseball. The stadium was designed by Populous (formerly known as HOK Sport), which is renowned for creating many outstanding sports facilities including Major League Baseball, as well as NFL, NBA and NHL among other projects.
With a seating capacity of 5,038, Pensacola Bayfront Stadium consistently hosted large crowds throughout the Blue Wahoos' inaugural season including 40 sellout crowds in the team's 68 home dates in 2012. The club also led the league in attendance, with a total of 328,147 fans coming through the gates, equating to a league-leading average of 4,826.
The multi-use facility was also designed to host a wide range of events besides baseball, including football, as well as concerts and many other possibilities. The stadium also provides one of the best views in sports, with the scenic Pensacola Bay beyond the outfield walls, creating a unique backdrop.
It did not take long for the bayfront stadium to begin receiving accolades, with Baseballparks.com naming the facility it's 2012 Ballpark of the Year, which included facilities within the entire realm of baseball, including the Major Leagues. The stadium beat out new stadiums such as the Miami Marlins' new park, as well as the Boston Red Sox new spring training facility in Fort Myers.
"This is over the top, I can't believe it. What a great job everyone has done. Everyone should be real proud."
- Cincinnati Reds owner Bob Castellini
"I couldn't imagine a better place for a stadium and a team."
- Cincinnati Reds General Manager Walt Jocketty
"With a uniquely different ballpark - one on the short list of having the best view in all of sports - as a blueprint for progress and additional financial development, the future is incredibly bright in Pensacola"
- Joe Mock, Baseballparks.com
"It might be the nicest, fanciest, and most beautiful minor league park in America." - Stadium Journey
