Rainout #5 occured in Jamestown. Yesterday it rained very hard in Jamestown, so hard there were still puddles on the ground this morning. This afternoon another rain front moved through and dumped another good amount of rain. Based on the condition of the field it was impossible to play the game tonight. The Jamestown Jammers, are a Single A affiliate of Florida, play at Russell E. Diethrick, Jr. Park. The park was originally built in 1941, renovated in 1984 and again in 2001, seating 3,000. The latest renovation made this a nice smaller park to watch baseball. There is covered seating behind home plate and bleachers down each baseline. The primary seating is bleachers with backs in all areas. The Park is dedicated to Mr. Diethrick because he was "Mr. Baseball" Fan-Player-Manager-Owner-Supporter-Organizer-Friend. The Jammers were supposed to play a double-header against the Batavia Muckdogs. The field lines are RF-342', RC-414', CF-410', and LF-335'. New Logo. 2015 team moves to Granville, WVa and become the West Virginia Black Bears affiliated with Pittsburgh.
