The park replaced Ainsworth Field, which was built in 1947, and features natural grass and dirt playing field. Its concessions include regional specialties such as pepperoni balls, ox roast sandwiches, cheesesteaks, and Yuengling beer. It is part of the Louis J. Tullio Plaza, which also includes Erie Insurance Arena and the Warner Theatre, all governed by the Erie County Convention Center Authority. The stadium has a seating capacity of 6,000. After the 2016 season, the SeaWolves partnered with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) in a naming rights agreement to rebrand the stadium UPMC Park.
In a 2008, the ESPN sports broadcast company ranked the ballpark number five out of ten minor league ballpark seating arrangements. They especially noted its unique mezzanine level that overlooks the infield along the first base side. In July 2015, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) also ranked the stadium number five among the most vegetarian-friendly minor league ballparks.

This is a perfect park to watch our SeaWolfes. Thats hear you howl. No seat is bad and the food is good. They have many events to draw crowds. We go about 4 times a year more »
Super nice layout at the field. With all of the latest upgrades, the whole place is very well done. I would recommend checking out a few games. No real bad seats in the house! The team is doing well this year too.
Awesome park but beware when ordering tickets. We ordered tickets online and didn't notice we weren't together. We were in the same section but not in the same row, which was rough since our son was with us. Thankfully everyone attending was super friendly and we managed to sort it out with some really friendly people in the section and all was well.
