Down on the Farm: A Visit to “MoonDog Country”

Franklin Rogers Park 2

The first base side offers the only elevated seating with room for 75 fans atop the MoonDogs dugout. This leaves ample space for various concessions, souvenirs and more. You can also easily walk behind home plate, through the grandstand area, and around old-fashioned poles without missing the action.
