Judy Johnson Field at Daniel S. Frawley Stadium - Wilmington, Delaware

In 1992, the Royals top Class A team played in Baseball City, Florida, in front of 17,406 fans. A year later, a shift to the Carolina League in this new park located 30 miles from the Liberty Bell brought out 332,132. Judy Johnson was the first native of Delaware inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Daniel Frawley was the incumbent mayor of Wilmington who passed away a year after the stadium opened.

Interstate 95 rumbles behind the leftfield fence.

Moving that speed pitch booth back just a few feet could generate a whole lot of extra revenue.

The drum and bugle corps begins to warm up.

The Wilmington Blue Rocks are named after Delaware's most famous rock, Brandywine Blue Gneiss.
