North Carolina's downtown ballparks

10 posts in this topic

Three of North Carolina's largest cities have downtown ballparks. Durham was the first with the construction of Durham Bulls Athletic Park in the 1990s. In 2005 NewBridge Bank Park (use to be First Horizon Park) opened in downtown Greensboro. And today BB&T Ballpark opens for its first game in downtown Winston-Salem

Durham Bulls Athletic Park opened 1995 - seating capacity 10,000 (Durham Bulls AAA)

There is a difference. New Bridge Bank Park only has 5200 chair-back seats but a capacity of 7,499. BB&T Ballpark has 5,500 chair-back seats.

That information is wrong. The only trusted source is from the official Greensboro Grasshopper website. I was off by 100.

...The stadium's seating capacity currently stands at 7,499 which includes 5,300 chair back seats, 16 luxury suites and 2 grass berms and picnic areas...

Both Stadiums have much higher seating capacities of over 7,000. In your initial post you counted actual fixed seats for one, but counted seating capacity for the other.
