Fitzpatrick Stadium


Fitzpatrick Stadium

Fitzpatrick Stadium is a 6,000 seat multi-purpose outdoor stadium in Portland, Maine, USA. It is located between Interstate 295, Hadlock Field baseball stadium, and the Portland Exposition Building, the second oldest arena in continuous operation in the United States. Formerly known as Portland Stadium, it was renamed in 1989 to honor James J. Fitzpatrick, one of the most respected figures in Maine athletic history. The historic stadium recently underwent a $1.4 million renovation project that included replacing the grass with FieldTurf, a new rubberized track, bleachers, and rest rooms.
