History

UPMC Park in Erie, Pennsylvania has been the home of the Eastern League’s Erie SeaWolves since 1995. The ballpark opened as Jerry Uht Park in 1995 and replaced Ainsworth Field as the home of the Seawolves. The 6,000-seat ballpark cost $9 million to build, and its dimensions are 316 to left field, 400 ft to center field, and 328 ft to right field.

Since opening, UPMC Park has undergone a few renovations. In 2006, the ballpark underwent a $4 million renovation that added a two-tiered picnic area, a new 40 ft electronic scoreboard, new concessions, and eleven luxury boxes. More recently, a new 33 ft wall, known as the Gray Monster, was built in left field in 2012. The 2012 renovations also moved the left field foul pole out four feet from 312 ft to 316 ft and relocated the batting cages from left field to right-center.
