Unlike NYC's minor-league stadiums, the view beyond the outfield wall at this Long Island ballpark is nothing to wax poetic about, because while Brooklyn has the Cyclone roller coaster and Staten Island has the lower Manhattan skyline, there's nothing to see here but some undeveloped parcels of land. But inside the stadium itself, the atmosphere isn't bleak at all. There's a seating capacity of 6,002, but fan support for the Atlantic League's Long Island Ducks is so strong that this is often exceeded thanks to the SRO tickets sold once all the seats are filled. Many details of the venue itself are designed to be fan-friendly as well. An aisle dividing the main seating bowl is positioned so as to not obstruct anyone's view, club seats on the second-deck suite level behind home plate come with waiter service, and adults can take advantage of a smoking section and a pair of wine carts. For kids, meanwhile, there's the requisite moonbounce and speed pitch options, and a picnic area down the left-field line.Team Store
In addition to the standard logo-emblazoned apparel and souveniers, the Ducks' team store, the Waddle-In Shop, sells a good deal of items autographed by the numerous former major leaguers who have played for the club.
