Lancaster’s Community Hub With Alexandra Bunn: Episode 74
Playing at fan-friendly Clipper Magazine Stadium, located just north of downtown Lancaster, the Barnstormers have brought enjoyment to over four million patrons since that memorable first-ever game on May 11, 2005. During that time, the club has produced two championships, winning Lancaster’s first professional baseball title in more than half a century in 2006. The ‘Stormers repeated the feat in 2014.
In addition to their successes in the standings, the Barnstormers have sent a number of players either back to the Major Leagues or to “The Show” for the first time. Among the players who have gone from Prince Street to the big leagues are former first round pick Jerome Williams, who later took the mound for the Phillies, local product Matt Watson and current Boston Red Sox right-hander Marcus Walden.
Clipper Magazine Stadium has become a venue that is utilized for far more than baseball. It has become a party venue, an expo center, a concert hall, a Christmas village, and much more.
