Frontier Field is a baseball stadium located at One Morrie Silver Way in downtown Rochester, New York. The park opened in 1996, replacing Silver Stadium in northern Rochester, which had been home to professional baseball in Rochester since 1929. Although the stadium was built for baseball, Frontier Field has had several tenants in numerous sports, including the Rochester Raging Rhinos of the United Soccer Leagues from 1996 to 2005, the Rochester Rattlers of Major League Lacrosse from 2001 to 2002, and the Rochester Red Wings of the International League since 1997. The ballpark seats 10,840 spectators for baseball.
Rochester-based telecommunications company Frontier has held the naming rights to the ballpark since its opening in 1996. Frontier Field hosted the Triple-A All-Star Game on July 12, 2000.
Ground was broken on Frontier Field in November 1994. The stadium, designed by Ellerbe Becket, opened on July 11, 1996. Although Frontier Field was always intended to be primarily a baseball facility, it was constructed to be able to accommodate the Rochester Rhinos soccer team as well.
After the Rhinos left Frontier Field for PAETEC Park in 2005, the Rochester Red Wings became the sole full-time tenant at Frontier Field. As a result, the Wings made upgrades to the park to make the stadium a better baseball facility. The first notable upgrade, the installation of a new 24ft by 32ft video scoreboard in left field, was completed in time for the 2010 season. Originally, a new grass turf was to be installed following the 2006 season to replace the grass that has been beat up over the years from extensive use in baseball, soccer, and lacrosse. No such replacement was made for 2007, but work commenced following that season and a new grass surface with an improved drainage system was installed prior to the 2008 season.

  • Great views of downtown Rochester. Park otherwise is nothing special, but functions well. Major plus is an actual live organist! Don’t see that much anymore. Major minus is netting around the field.

  • Frontier field is located in Rochester Ny in the area of Kodak main office on State street. 1 Morrie Sliver Way. The baseball field has been a favorite spot for me and my family since they replaced it some years ago. Atmosphere at this stadium is the best and great layout. The employee's of the ball park do an outstanding job keeping the stadium clean, organized and very safe 👍 👏 👌 And everyone of them smiling to give us a great time. Thank you owners and employees who make my family enjoyable and smiling. Gerry
  • Great place to catch a game and catch some fireworks after. My family loved it last time we went. They offer a huge array of different food and drinks as well for adults. It can be pricey but as any live sporting event is it should be expected.
