Sal Maglie Stadium
Your only trip outside of Lewiston is well worth it.
Sal Maglie Stadium is named for the famous Dodgers Pitcher who earned the nickname "The Barber" for his ability to pitch so close inside it would give hitters a close shave.
Sal Maglie Stadium was completely demolished in 1999 as part of the reconstruction of Niagara Falls High School. The reconstruction has turned the stadium into the premiere stadium of Western New York outside of Coca Cola Field, where the AAA Buffalo Bisons play.
A true stadium, elevated bleachers stretch the length of the third base line and just past the first base coaches box.
320' down the lines and 400' to dead center.
Sal Maglie Stadium includes Bullpens and sunken professional dugouts. The stadium is three miles from Niagra University, and six miles from Washuta Park.

Lewiston Town Park at Pletcher Road - Red Diamond
This field has been completely reconstructed for the 2011 season!
In 2010, this field presented a challenge to teams due to the placement of the afternoon sun and the "cut out" style base paths.
In 2011, we have completely renovated and reconstructed the Red Diamond. The fields position has been turned 90 degrees, guaranteeing that the sun never comes into play. This new placement also allows the left field line spectator section to be in the shade of the existing trees.
The field now has convertible 60' / 70' Marco Clay Base paths with high quality drainage ensuring easy maintenece in the event of rain.
Most notable in the new construction is the unique and exciting outfield fences. Tired of seeing fly balls that should be lazy outs clear 205' fences? So were we. Lewiston and the Lancer Classic is putting doubles and triples (as well as a cutoff man!) back into play in 2011. Batters are going to be challenged by the RED MONSTER in deep center field. In addition to the 270' distance, batters can expect to see fences over 16' high in dead center.
By incorporating a few of the old features and fencing of the old "Pletcher Red Diamond", we have created a unique and challenging outfield fence structure with variable heights and distances that will challenge hitters and fielders alike.
Pictures will be posted as soon as the snow melts!
