Spirit Communications Park selected as Ballpark of the Year
COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) - Spirit Communications Park, the home of the Columbia Fireflies, was named Ballpark of the Year by Ballpark Digest.
The ballpark was selected as the best minor league ballpark in the country.
"Spirit Communications Park is not only our Ballpark of the Year, it's also one of the best ballparks opened in the last decade," said Ballpark Digest Publisher Kevin Reichard.
Spirit Communications Park had its groundbreaking January 6, 2015 and hosted it's first game April 14 of this year in front of 9,077 fans.
The park also broke the single-season attendance record for a professional team in Columbia July 5 when they welcomed 181,673 fans for the season.
Ballpark Digest will be on hand for the August 11 game at Spirit Communications Park to recognize the feat. The Fireflies will also be distributing commemorative posters to the first 2,500 fans that day.
