  • My first visit was on a field trip with my seventh graders. AP schedules a couple of day games during the Spring to accommodate school group outings. $5 gets admission and a box lunch. The venue itself is somewhat dated but very serviceable. It's fairly small so every seat offers a great view. Seats are on the first and third base lines and behind home plate, so no outfield seating. All the seats have cup holders. Two big restrooms. Standard baseball concessions. There's a gift shop and plenty of souvenirs. I'm used to Auto Zone Park in Memphis, home of the Memphis Redbirds, the AAA affiliate for the STL Cardinals, one of the premier minor league ball park in the country. As a transplant to WV, I like Power Park. I would love to come more often.
  • It's a nice little park. Bathrooms and Stadium are clean. Great place for a game.
