Following a stadium assessment report in 2009, EwingCole was asked to develop various concepts for a major renovation to the AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders’ 10,500 seat multi-purpose stadium, which opened in 1989. The original multi-purpose stadium design, with a steep upper deck, lacks the intimacy, charm and fan amenities found in newer minor league ballparks. The $40 million renovation completely reinvents the ballpark. It entailed demolishing everything but the lower seating bowl, playing field and the home clubhouse, which was rebuilt in 2005. In the new renovation scheme, all non-premium seating are confined to the lower bowl, only suite and club seating are located above the main concourse. General admission patrons have a variety of new seating options from which to choose, such as tiered picnic areas and lawn seating. The concessions, restrooms, operations and administrative facilities are all new. The stadium renovation was completed in 2013.
