The Community Maritime Park will debut the use of the multi-faceted baseball stadium on April 5 to kickoff the first Pensacola Blue Wahoos’ season.

“I am very excited about the chance to go see the first game of the season,” said Escambia County resident, Kaci Patterson. “I think it is a very beautiful stadium and I hope the team will do very well this year.”

Thursday’s debut comes after some legal, political and financial challenges regarding the use of the facility as well as the associated cost for the newly constructed venue.

However, with an integral portion of the master project complete, many citizens eagerly wait to hear the ubiquitous phrase:  Let’s PLAY BALL

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos are affiliated with the Cincinnati Reds.
