With the location in place, construction began in 1992. By April 14th 1993, the ballpark was complete and the Tidewater Tides became the Norfolk Tides. The dimensions of Harbor Park are 333 to left 410 to center and 338 to right with an all grass field. This matches Shea Stadium's ballfield and dimensions. Players will be training in almost identical ballfield conditions to their Major League parents.
