Down on the Farm: The Other Mayo Facility in Rochester

Mayo Field 7

Built in 1951, Mayo Field can apparently harbor 2,750 people, though that seems a stretch. Roughly 1,200 attended my game and the ballpark appeared at least 80 percent full.

Home of the Rochester Honkers for 20 years, parking is tricky and will cost you a few dollars, since permits are required in the neighborhoods and lots are owned by the city. A parking fee is unheard of at most Northwoods parks and was rather disappointing.
