Hadlock Field is a Minor League baseball stadium in Portland, Maine. It is primarily home to the Portland Sea Dogs of the Eastern League. It is also the home of the Portland Bulldogs and Deering Rams baseball teams. The stadium is named for Edson J. Hadlock, Jr., a long-time Portland High School baseball coach and physics teacher.

History and development

The park opened on April 18, 1994, and currently has a capacity of 7,368 seats. About 400 seats were added in right field before the start of the 2006 season. Hadlock Field is located between Interstate 295, the historic Fitzpatrick Stadium, and the Portland Exposition Building, the second-oldest arena in continuous operation in the United States. In 2003, when the Sea Dogs affiliated with the Boston Red Sox, a replica Green monster, called the Maine Monster, was added to left field to match the original at the Red Sox' Fenway Park. A replica Citgo sign and Coke bottle were added too to make the field look even more like Fenway Park.

The Portland Sea Dogs, who play home games here are the 2006 Eastern League Champions.

The left-field fence is 315 feet from home plate, the center field-fence is 400 feet, and the fence in right-field is 330 feet away.
