Alaska Baseball League
2001 Ballparks Tour


The Kenai Peninsula Oilers are located in the town of Kenai, down the Kenai Peninsula south of Anchorage. They play their home games at Coral Seymour Memorial Park which was built in 1976. With the heavy air blowing in from the Cook Inlet, Kenai typically lags behind the other teams in the league when it comes to home runs; in 1998 the ballpark was remodeled including moving the outfield fences ten feet closer to home plate. Five rows of box seats are in a covered grandstand behind home plate with the press box area situated behind the back row of seats. Open general admission bleacher seating is down each base line. Like the Miners ballpark in Palmer, this ballpark is also not equipped with lights.
