Alaska Baseball League
2001 Ballparks Tour


The Mat-Su Miners play in the town of Palmer, about an hour's drive northeast of Anchorage. Their home ballpark is Hermon Brothers Field, built in 1976, located at the Alaska State Fairgrounds and is one of the two ballparks of the Alaska Baseball League without lights. In an idyllically wooded setting, grandstand seating provides an absolutely stunning view of the Chugach Mountains beyond the outfield wall. Several rows of box seats are in the covered grandstand behind home plate. Open general admission bleacher seats are located down each base line. The ballpark is equipped with a web cam which is used for every home game.

An interesting feature of this ballpark is the orientation of the parking area with respect to the entrance to the seating area. Parking is located beyond the center field fence so it's a long walk around the outfield and down the base line to the seating area entrance behind home plate.

These photos are from the game on Wednesday, 6/20/01, 7:00 p.m. game when the Miners hosted the Anchorage Glacier Pilots. All of my original photos on this page are approximately one-quarter size. Netscape users can right-click and view-image to see the full-size images.
