The Lexington County Recreation and Aging Commission (LCARC) repurposed the former Wildcat Hollow football field into the new Lexington County Baseball Stadium. The new stadium, which is located on Ball Park Road in Lexington and adjacent to a number of LCRAC’s other fields, was carefully sited to preserve the existing tree line, while also utilizing the existing grades. The stadium seats approximately 1,000 which allows for an intimate baseball viewing experience. Features of the stadium include an expanded concrete concourse, lower bowl box seating, metal bleacher seating with a roof canopy, a stadium club that can be used for special events, administrative offices, and concessions. The dimensions used in the design of the field were taken from some of the country’s most iconic Major League fields, including Fenway, Wrigley, Yankee and Dodger stadiums. The stadium is the new home of the Lexington County Blowfish (formerly Columbia Blowfish), which is a collegiate summer league team.
