CONSOL Energy ParkEdit profile
CONSOL Energy Park is a 3,200-seat baseball-only stadium in North Franklin Township near Washington, Pennsylvania that hosted its first regular season baseball game on May 29, 2002, as the primary tenants of the facility, the Washington Wild Things, lost to the Canton Coyotes, 3-0. The ballpark also hosts the California University of Pennsylvania Vulcans baseball team. It also is host to Trinity High School's baseball team and the WPIAL Baseball Championships. It was briefly the home of the Pittsburgh Riverhounds soccer club (who now play at Chartiers Valley High School)during the 2005 and 2006 seasons. CONSOL Energy Park is located near Interstate 70 and is one of the only ballparks that includes a hot tub in the viewing stands. Ballpark Scholarships, Inc., a non-profit organization leases the stadium. Artificial turf will be installed in the Fall of 2010. The stadium was formerly known as Falconi Field until April 12, 2007, when CONSOL Energy, Inc. and Washington County Family Entertainment entered a naming rights partnership to rename the complex CONSOL Energy Park. The field, located within 30 miles of the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, is constantly confused with its sister-namesake.
