Daniel S. Frawley Stadium

When it comes to family-friendly entertainment, a game at Daniel S. Frawley Stadium, home of the Wilmington Blue Rocks, is sure to be a home run! Although this stadium can seat over 6,000 baseball fans and is conveniently accessible from New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland, it still retains a charming, small-town feel, because there’s more to Frawley Stadium than just a great game of baseball. Visitors young and old will enjoy entertaining games and contests between innings, a sizeable selection of tasty concessions, comfortable seating with great views of the field, and a fireworks display every Friday night. Before the game or on your way out, stop by the stadium’s gift shop, appropriately dubbed “The Quarry,” so that everyone in your group can bring a little piece of Frawley Stadium and the Blue Rocks back home with them. 801 Shipyard Dr, Wilmington, DE 19801
