East Field was most recently home of the Adirondack LumberJacks of the independent Northern League (formerly the Northeast League). It was also once home to the Double-A affiliates of the White Sox and Tigers. It was dubbed the "Lumber Yard" while the LumberJacks were playing here as part of the Northern League. There are individual plastic seats behind home plate, and backless bleachers along both lines. Also, there are bleachers in the outfield which is an odd site at a minor league park. The grandstand behind home plate is uncovered. The covered concourse area is behind the bleachers and offers a couple of concession stands as well as a souvenir stand. A new scoreboard with a small message board was added sometime in the late 1990's. Like most every minor league team, the Lumberjacks had a mascot, Jack Timber. His appearances were limited, though, and he did not seem to distract fans from the game being played. The PA announcer was lively, having copied many of the antics/promotions/sound bites from Rick Zolzer, the PA announcer at Hudson Valley. It's no coincidence, however, as they both work for the same entertainment company. Between inning promotions were numerous here - at least one every half inning. East Field probably most resembles Baxter Park (Mountaindale, NY) - both which were once good enough for the Northern League, but neither of which will probably host pro ball again.
