Memorable Moments:

This park is a fairly standard run of the mill minor league park, except for two things. You can see below, the Blue Ridge Mountains. That blueish haze is how they got their name. Also, there is a regulation, to scale, wiffle ball field modeled after Fenway Park. Both are pictured below.
