Finding Your Way Around Falcon Park

The Finding Your Way Around Falcon Park

The concourse behind the home plate bleachers is a hubbub of vendors, displays and fans prior to first pitch.

If you enter Falcon Park through the main gate, navigating your way around is pretty simple. Because it's a small, one concourse facility, it's easy to freely walk around the park; there are no off-limit sections and there will be no stairs until you climb up or down to your seat. The park's lone concession stand sits to your right upon entry, and the area behind home is a hot spot prior to first pitch. The team sells its programs in this area, and a handful of businesses have tables set up here, too. Prior to the game, one or two Doubledays players will sign at a designated table in this area.

As you move around the concourse, you'll essentially be walking behind the bleachers. The team has done a good job at decorating this area, and light posts have banners reflecting key years in the team's history. Behind the first base bleachers is the Doubledays Wall of Fame and the Auburn Baseball Hall of Fame, featuring inductees such as Mel Stottlemyre and Tug McGraw. Here, you'll also see the team's Pinckney Division banners (they won six straight from 2002 through 2007) and league championship banner. Keep moving down the concourse toward right field and you'll pass the ballpark's party deck and eventually, the kids' play area. Beyond the right field foul pole is the visitors' clubhouse.

If you walk down the third base-side concourse, starting from behind home plate, you'll notice the Doubledays' souvenir kiosk on your left, a covered picnic area further down and eventually, Auburn's clubhouse.
