The Savannah Sand Gnats, a new Single A affiliate of Montreal, play in William Grayson Stadium. The stadium, built in 1941, with seating for 4,000, is named for Spanish-American war hero General William Grayson. Minor league baseball has been played in this spot since 1920. Savannah has deep baseball roots, being a charter member of the South Atlantic League in 1904. Shoeless Joe Jackson led the league in hitting in 1909 with a .358 average. The Sand Gnats were playing the Asheville Tourists. When Andrea was watching the managers go out to exchange line-ups she thought she saw a familiar face as the Sand Gnats manager. Checking the program she was right, it was ex-Mariner 2nd baseman, Joey Cora. Joey's team got the win tonight beating the Tourists 7-1. The box score was Tourists R-1, H-4, E-2 and Sand Gnats R-7, H-9, E-0. The stadium opened in April 1941 and has a seating capacity of 8,500 one of the largest minor league parks in the country when it opened. There are only 500 reserved seats, four rows in front of the aisle and two sections right behind homeplate. General admission reserved seats are bleachers with backs and plain general admission seats are bleachers without backs. You won't need your glove except in the 1st base line bleachers as the rest of the area is screened in. There are some very old wooden bleachers in left field, but they don't sell tickets for them. The bottom part of the scoreboard is hand operated, you can see the woman putting a score up. The field lines are RF-310', RC-383', CF-400', and LF-a short 290'. The Sand Gnats mascot was not present.
