G. Richard Pfitzner Stadium Review
Review of G. Richard Pfitzner Stadium Rating: 3
by Malcolm MacMillan
- Ballpark has capacity of 6,000
It's pretty safe to say that G. Richard Pfitzner Stadium is unlike virtually any other stadium you might encounter on your travels. Once you're inside, the similarities between this ballpark and others across the Minor Leagues are many. But from the outside, Pfitzner Stadium is, well, different in a way that's hard to describe until you see it.
The ballpark opened in time for the 1984 season and has an official capacity of 6,000. Its field measures 315 feet to each corner and 400 feet to straightaway center field. There's a large video board in left-center that provides the game's box score, player photos and stats. When it first opened, the park was named Davis Ford Park, and was soon changed to Prince William County Stadium. In 1995, it took its current name in honor of local politician Pfitzner, who helped bring professional baseball to the area.
The defining feature at the ballpark is its aluminum bleachers, which make up nearly all the seating.
