Product Description


Jack Critchfield Park is a stadium in Slippery Rock, Pennsylvania. It is primarily used for baseball and hosts the Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania college baseball team. The ballpark is also home of the Prospect League's Slippery Rock Sliders. It was also the home of the Slippery Rock Sliders of the Frontier League in 2007. The Frontier Sliders played a partial home schedule in 2007, then left Slippery Rock to become a full-time road team in 2008. However, the Prospect Sliders will be returning for the 2009 season at Jack Critchfield. Though this team is with a different league, it will have the same uniforms and logos that were used by the Frontier League team.

The ballpark has a capacity of 1,500 people and opened in 2002. When the Frontier Sliders began their season in 2007, Jack Critchfield Park became the first baseball stadium to be utilized for minor league baseball in Butler County in over fifty years. The last minor league game was played at nearby Pullman Park in the city of Butler in 1951. In 2009, Pullman Park will host its own Prospect League team. The Butler BlueSox are expected to be one of the Sliders top rivals due to the teams being less than twenty miles from each other.
