Alliance Bank Stadium at Syracuse, NY
Alliance Bank Stadium
The 11,117-seat minor league
baseball Alliance Bank Stadium is in
Syracuse, New York. It opened over a decade
ago in April 10, 1997. The dimensions of the
field are 330 feet to left field, 400 feet
to center field, and 330 feet to right
field. AstroTurf was used in the stadium,
but was replaced by natural grass soon after
it was opened.
The Blue Jays, which was the former parent
organization, chose AstroTurf with the
intention of accustoming their prospects
with the playing surface used in the Rogers
Center in Toronto.
The Center is now using
material which better resembles real grass
The Alliance Bank Stadium is home to the
Triple-A affiliate of the Washington
the Syracuse Chiefs.
Aside from the Chiefs, the popular Syracuse
Salty Dogs, which used to be a soccer club,
the Alliance Bank Stadium
their home. The club had a huge fan base,
but they were not in good
terms with the Syracuse
Chiefs and the Onondoga County, so they were
forced to disband.
Before 2005, the Alliance Bank Stadium was
referred to as P&C Stadium. The name came
from P&C Foods, which is the regional brand
of supermarkets operated by the Penn Traffic
Corporation. The company lost naming rights
in September 2004 when they went bankrupt.
