There have been many complaints about Municipal Stadium in recent years (mostly from the new ownership group), so its future appears in question. If Hagerstown wants to keep an affiliated team, they will most likely need to build a new park. With other newer parks in the South Atlantic League, this park is looking more and more outdated. Still, it is not a bad park. It does feature a covered grandstand behind homeplate. There are a few rows of box seats that run from first base all the way around to third base. Bleacher sections down each line complete the seating. Its setting is residential with houses being visible over the outfield fences. The concourse area is directly behind the seating sections. A new picnic area with a grill and beer garden were added in the early '00's. Concessions are well varied - the BBQ stand is especially recommended as it features tasty ribs and pulled pork sandwiches. As can be expected at an older ballpark, the atmosphere is quite laid back. No crazy sound effects and just a couple of between inning contests. Municipal Stadium is still a nice enough park to host minor league baseball, but in this day of new parks and luxury boxes, its future is clearly doomed. Still as of 2010, no movement has been made on getting a new ballpark built and there has been no further threats from the owners about moving the team.
