THE PARTY EXPANDS AT FIRST HORIZON PARK
TEAM UNVEILS PLANS FOR EXTENSION OF THE SUITE LEVEL

(Greensboro, NC) – Three consecutive seasons of record-breaking sales and attendance have spawned a major addition to First Horizon Park.

Owners and management of Greensboro Baseball, LLC., finalized plans Thursday for the extension of the luxury suite level at First Horizon Park. The development will create space for two additional open-air party decks, giving the stadium a total of three.

“This is a significant investment on the part of our ownership and demonstrates their continued commitment to the guest experience at First Horizon Park,” said Grasshoppers President and General Manager Donald Moore.

The original Yes! Weekly Party Deck, which was occupied every home game of the 2005 and 2006 season, was created to offer a unique and luxurious option for groups entertaining 35-75 guests.

“Fans enjoy the private setting of the spacious party deck area because it really allows them to socialize and interact with their guests,” said Moore. “This expansion gives us the flexibility to cater to larger groups whom we were unable to accommodate at the luxury level before.”

The expansion will be managed by Lomax Construction of Greensboro and is scheduled to be completed by early March.

This is the second major improvement to the park in its short, three-year history. At the conclusion of the inaugural season the team redesigned Natty’s Hill, the grass berm in left field, to enhance the view of the playing field, as well as the seating comfort and capacity.

The Grasshoppers have welcomed over 1,250,000 fans to First Horizon Park, becoming the only Class A team in the history of Minor League Baseball to draw over 400,000 fans and grow its attendance for three straight years in a new ballpark. They are the proud recipients of both the South Atlantic League’s Club Merit Award and the General Manager of the Year Award for the past three years.
