Long before the new Single-A "Bowling Green Ballpark" took over this town in 2009, there was Nick Denes Field. While professional baseball would disappear from this area for 57 years after WWII, "The Nick" would play host to top tier NCAA Division I Collegiate Baseball since it opened back in 1969. Denes Field has undergone more than 3 million in renovations in recent years to make it one of the best ballparks in its division.
