The Mahoning Valley Scrappers, a Short A affiliate of Cleveland, play at Cafaro Field, seating 6,000. The stadium is named in honor of William M. & Alyce M. Cafaro. Mr. Cafaro was a local businessman and mall developer who provided the funding for the stadium. This stadium was built in 1999 and is another new stadium that is fan friendly and a good place to watch baseball. The concessions are located behind and under the seating area. There is a private party picnic area down the 1st base line. There are box seats for 5 rows down 1st baseline towards RF to the end and down the 3rd baseline towards LF to the end. The Scrappers were playing the Batavia Muckdogs. The Muckdogs won 4-3. The box score was Muckdogs R-4, H-11, E-0 and Scrappers R-3, H-3, E-0. The field lines were RF & LF-335', RC & LC-375', and CF-405'. The bullpens are behind the right and left field shortened fences. Scrappy is the mascot. He was wearing a soccer jersey as tonight was youth soccer night.. Visiting tonight was Slider the Cleveland Indians mascot. Andrea is ready for a foul while Jim is out taking pictures and gathering information. When the ballfield was built a neighbor built tree house so his children could watch the ball games. We realized that the Muckdog right fielder is Jake Blalock the brother of Hank Blalock of the Texas Rangers. The field is adjacent to a mall. There is a $2 per person walk-in charge which is the same as the per car charge. Attendance tonight was 4,034. New Logo 2009.
