Williamsport is probably best known for hosting the Little League World Series every summer, but they also have a long history of hosting minor league teams. Bowman Field is a classic minor league park featuring a large covered grandstand. Prior to the 2000 season, over $1 million was put into the park for improvements. Most of it went towards improving the main entrance and the concourse area, which is located behind the grandstand. A large concession stand was added with a good variety of affordable food. There are no real regional specialties here, but they do have a good Mexican stand. Also a souvenir store was built, but is so small that it feels crowded when more than 5 people are in it. A new roof was also put on the grandstand as part of the renovations in 2000. Most of the seating is metal benches (with backs), with just 5 rows of box seats close to the field. A simple but classy scoreboard is located in right field. The park is located in a city park and most of the parking is free. The atmosphere is pretty typical of what you'd find in a small town. The team does do some between inning games, but overall it is quite laid back and fans seem to be there to watch the game. Bowman Field, the second oldest park in the affiliated minor leagues (after Vermont's Centennial Field), is a fine place to take in a game.
