The Dayton Dragons, a Single A affiliate of Cincinnati, play at Fifth/Third Field which was built in 2000, with seating for 7,230. This stadium was built in a manufacturing area adjacent to downtown Dayton. It has a large plaza outside the stadium on the 3rd base side. From the plaza on the half hour you can see a huge water fountain that is located in the Great Miami River. It is a smaller two level stadium designed by the same company that designed the Louisville stadium. The second level slightly overhangs the first level seating and the concourse and concession area. The second level has individual seats and the suites with seating. There is seating in left field, a party deck in left center, and lawn seating at the corners and in right field. The Dragons were playing the Quad City River Bandits and lost a close game 5-4. The Dragons tied the game at 4 apiece in the 6th with 3 runs, then the Bandits got a homerun in the 7th which won the game. The box score was River Bandits R-5, H-10, E-0 and Dragons R-4, H-10, E-2. The field lines are RF-338', RC-371', CF-402', LC-381', and LF-325'-338'. There are two mascots Heater and Gem. When the Dragons do something good the dragons on the scoreboard puff smoke and blink their red eyes. One between inning activity had a father putting on swim goggles and covering his face with shaving cream, then the child tried to throw and stick small round objects in the shaving cream.
