The Wenatchee AppleSox (summer collegiate; West Coast League) and Wenatchee Valley College extended the team’s lease at Paul Thomas Sr. Field, the team’s home since 2000, for the next four seasons, through the 2015 season.
“I appreciate [Wenatchee Valley College president] Jim Richardson and athletic director Greg Franz for working hard to create an agreement that will allow us continued use of Paul Thomas Sr. Field each summer,” said AppleSox owner/general manager Jim Corcoran. “It’s a win/win/win situation for the college, the AppleSox, and our fans.”
“We love having the AppleSox as partners. They bring so many people to campus for what is one of the best family entertainment values you can find. We are happy the AppleSox will be staying for at least another four years,” said Richardson.
Paul Thomas Sr. Field serves as the home of the Wenatchee Valley Knights baseball program during the school year and is the home of the AppleSox during the summer. The stadium includes 1,200 fixed seats that feature both general admission and premium seating. The premium seats make up the lower bowl around home plate and were brought in from the Kingdome before it’s implosion in March of 2000.
