Jerry Uht Park Facts, Figures & Firsts


  • Construction cost: $9 million
  • Financing: Most of the tab was paid for by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, as $8 million in state funds were allocated from the capital budget to pay for construction. To cover architectural costs, the City of Erie, Erie County, and Team Erie, a 300-member citizens' group, each chipped in $300,000 apiece. Neighboring Millcreek Township also contributed $25,000.
  • Architects: Weber Murphy Fox and Lescher Mahoney Sports
  • Construction manager: Heery International
  • Groundbreaking date: July 27, 1994
  • Was built on the site of an old Sears building.
  • Located in downtown Erie and is directly adjacent to the Tullio Arena, which opened in 1983 and is generally referred to as the Erie Civic Center. Because of the arena's prior presence, the ballpark has a short porch in left field, as there's just 312 feet of space between home plate and the beginning of Civic Center property.
  • Had no official name when it opened, so the local press generally referred to it then as the "new downtown ballpark" and, in some cases, the "no-name ballpark."
  • Replaced Ainsworth Field, which opened in 1923 and still stands about 2½ miles southwest in a residential neighborhood where the old field is often used by amateur teams.
  • First game: The Erie SeaWolves beat the Jamestown Jammers, 3-2, on June 20, 1995 in front of 6,300 fans
