McCormick Field

McCormick Field in Asheville, NC, is the longtime home of the Asheville Tourists, the South Atlantic League affiliate of the Colorado Rockies. McCormick Field is both a classic ballpark and an example of a ballpark reconstruction done right. It has been the center of baseball on the edge of downtown Asheville since opening in 1924 and undergoes renovations on a regular basis. Capacity at the ballpark is 4,000 and many home runs are hit at McCormick, thanks to a right-field wall being only 300 feet down the line. A large scoreboard in right is 42 feet high by 94 feet wide.
