The Kannapolis Intimidators, a Single A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox, play in Fieldcrest Cannon Stadium. Fieldcrest Cannon Company has a huge textile mill in Kannapolis. The stadium was opened in 1995. It is different from most of the stadiums we have seen so far. The seating is all outside, but nicely done with a nice rise between rows for good observation of the game. The suite area is in a separate building behind the concourse on the first base side. The broadcast booth is behind the seating behind home plate. The main concession area is in a plaza area behind the broadcast booth. There are two covered picnic areas behind the seating on the third base side. The team is named the Intimidators to honor Kannapolis native Dale Earnhardt's involvement with the team. The Intimidators were playing the Hickory Crawdads. The Intimidators led through the 6th inning 5-3. In the top of the 7th after several walks and a grand slam by the Crawdads the game ended 9-5 in favor of the Crawdads. The box score was Crawdads R-9, H-7, E-2 and Intimidators R-5, H-9, E-1. The field lines are RF-310', RC-375', CF-400', LC-375', and LF-330'. The stadium seats 4,700. Today was Education Day with a 10am start. At this game there were Kindergarteners through High Schoolers and the older students were involved in the game trying to cheer the Intimidators to a win in the later innings. The mascot is Dub, we think a carry-over from when the team was called the Boll Weevils, because he has a W under his name on his jersey. They have the usual Thirsty Thursday with $1 beer. One of the between inning activities is the toilet paper wrap. Two people turn and wrap themselves with toilet paper from a roll held by another person. The contestant that looks most like a mummy is the winner. 2014 CMC-NorthEast Stadium with seating for 5,500.
