Your repeat winner in the Best of the Ballparks 2019 fan vote for Short Season-A facilities: Gesa Stadium, home of the Tri-City Dust Devils, after defeating LeLacheur Park, home of the Lowell Spinners.
Gesa Stadium won the finals after defeating Joseph L. Bruno Stadium (Tri-City ValleyCats), Avista Stadium (Spokane Indians) and PK Park (Eugene Emeralds) in prior rounds. The Short Season A competition featured the ballparks of the Northwest and NY-Penn Leagues.
“Winning this honor in back-to-back years is a true testament to the appreciation our fans have for Gesa Stadium,” said Dust Devils VP/GM Derrel Ebert.
“It’s very hard to repeat in the Best of the Ballparks fan vote, so hats off to the Dust Devils fans,” said Ballpark Digest Publisher Kevin Reichard.
Gesa Stadium opened in 1995, with the Tri-City Dust Devils arriving in Pasco in 2001.
