Portland ME Sea Dogs baseball game trip, just a quick instate couple of days on the Maine coast.

When you live in Maine, you have “Vacationland” in your backyard. The long drive up to and leaving Maine is removed when you are a local native living in Maine. This past weekend, zipped down to one of the favorite places on the Maine coast, Wells Beach to park it and take in some coastline salt air and sand.

Hungry For Stadium Food At Hadlock Field? Pick It Up Yourself Or Sit Still, Delivered To Your Seat. Door Dash It.

Lots to cram in on the mini vacation instate trip agenda including a visit to A Portland Sea Dogs baseball game at Hadlock Field.

Hadlock Field is a minor league baseball stadium in Portland, Maine.

New experience for me and here’s what I learned and can share about Hadlock Field. Hadlock Field, named at Portland High School baseball coach Edson Hadlock  Jr.

The Hadlock Field baseball stadium seats about 7,368 sport fans, compared to Boston’s Fenway Park which can handled roughly 37,500 bat, ball and glove baseball enthusiasts.

Many of the fans wear gloves. Not for warmth or to avoid frost bite. No no, to be ready to hoist that glove into the air and gain a baseball for the collection.

Hadlock Field is used primarily as the home park for the Portland Sea Dogs of the Minor Level Eastern League.

But the Portland High School Bulldogs, the Deering High School Rams baseball teams both utilize Hadlock Field. Hadlock Field is located at 271 Park Ave Portland ME, reach out with questions to 207-874-9300. The Portland Sea Dogs baseball field opened April 18th, 1994 and cost about three million to create. The Portland Sea Dogs are a Double A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.

How big is Hadlock Field? Here are the stats, the park by the numbers for the Sea Dogs home stadium.

Left field, 315′, Center field, 400′, Right field 330′ is how the Portland Sea Dogs home baseball park shapes up for dimensions.

Named after long time Portland High baseball coach Edson Hadlock Jr, Hadlock field is a 7,368 seat classic minor league baseball stadium.

Had a face lift overhaul in a major renovation in 1993 and boasts great site lines and an intimate atmosphere that brings the fans right into the action. In comparison, The Boston Red Sox’s Fenway Park seats roughly 37,500 baseball fans.

More Than Baseball Going On At Hadlock Field, Home Of The Portland Sea Dogs Team.

Easy park to get in and out of plus the game day atmosphere at Hadlock Field is probably similar to many other same level ballparks.

You don’t get bored, there is plenty going on to distract from the baseball action on the carefully manicured playing field. Contests, give aways, school and civic group recognition is pretty much going on using the LED big scoreboard screen and PA system. Lots of families, plenty of kids wearing Sea Dog and Boston Red Sox hats and baseball jerseys surround you. Most with gloves hoping to snag a pop fly foul ball into the stands.

A statue of the Sea Dogs’ mascot, Slugger the seal greets fans at the entrance to Hadlock Field.


Slugger is pretty acrobatic and not a bit shy as he/she inside that hot costume works hard to entertain and engage the crowd.

The Houlton Maine School of Dance team went to Portland Maine to perform their routine before the crowd at Hadlock Field in Portland ME! Both Houlton and Studio One in Millinocket dance teams combined to do a Sea Dogs game performance.

Posting more images of the trip down to see the Maine Sea Dogs baseball team that’s home games played at Hadlock Field park in Portland ME.

Plenty of groups invited to the Hadlock Field home games to generate interest and revenue.

The entertainment value beyond what happens with players successfully getting hits and running the bases. The weather was sunny, the park small enough so everyone got in and out quickly. Could move around and get something to snack on or visit with other folks you always bang into when you live and travel instate Maine.

The coastline along Wells Beach ME was misty with fog trying to burn off with a hot sun hidden behind the cloud cover.

Plenty of space along the Maine beach to play games, like one trio with sword play practice underway.

Since COVID protocols have been lifted and folks are moving around more freely, Maine’s tourist season is back in full swing. The being parked and not able to attend some more crowded Maine venues, only makes the desire to return to them stronger. Just walking along the coastline, through Maine wood’s trails or around open pasture farm fields.

So so lucky to have few people and all this vast space to move around in Maine.
