Seattle Redhawks baseball (NCAA D1 WAC) (2010–present)

Bannerwood Park is a baseball venue in Bellevue, Washington, United States. It is home to the Seattle Redhawks baseball team, a member of the NCAA Division I Western Athletic Conference.[1] The venue features lighting, bleacher seating, concessions, and restrooms.[2]

On February 23, 2010,[3] Bannerwood Park hosted Seattle's first home game since returning to Division I. The Redhawks lost 21–7 to Division II Saint Martin's.[4]

Usage[edit]

In addition to Seattle home games, Bannerwood Park also is the host to numerous high school baseball games, and the KingCo Conference 3A baseball tournament.

Seating[edit]

There are three sets of bleachers at the park. Behind home plate is the largest, seating 200 people. On the sides to that by the dugouts are smaller bleachers that seat 50 people each.

The official capacity of Bannerwood Park is 300, but there is lots of room to stand and watch or sit in your own folding chair down the foul lines into the outfield.
