VIDEO - Deltaville Ballpark Restoration

The ballpark was originally constructed in 1948, and hosted its first game in June of that year. In 1976, the first major renovation occurred, when much of the grandstand was rebuilt due to concerns of structural stability. A second renovation occurred in 1996, which saw the construction of new dugouts and replacement of the outfield fence.

In 2016, a multi-year renovation began to help preserve and appropriately renovate the ballpark. Over the winter of 2016-17, the 68-year-old roof was replaced. Contractors used custom-cut rough-sawn lumber to emulate the original wood, and metal roofing very similar to the original was installed. The scoreboard was also replaced, and a light pole which had a large woodpecker hole in it was replaced as well. Future plans include the enlargement the outdoor common area, rebuild an improved concession stand, and construct ADA-accessible bathrooms and seating areas.
