What rose up out of the ashes, surprised many (especially us). This wasn't like the other recent South Atlantic League towns like Charleston West Virginia or Greensboro North Carolina, who replaced their original ballparks with huge modern stadiums...bright lights and every bell and whistle imaginable. Instead, a small intimate 4,000 seat ballpark with a covered roof and no bells and whistles (well maybe a few), appeared in its place. Asheville had replaced its classic little ballpark with a classic little ballpark.
