Events at the Ballpark

Adult Baseball - Youth & Scholastic Baseball - Charity Softball - Concerts - Donkeys?

  • Deltaville Deltas

    The Deltas, an adult team often remembered as "semi-pro" in caliber, has played continuously at the ballpark since its construction. Today, ballplayers from across the Middle Peninsula & Northern Neck, many of whom are current or former collegiate athletes, fill the Deltas roster as they host teams from Hampton Roads, central Virginia, and local areas.

  • Youth & Scholastic

    American Legion Post 241 fields 3 teams for ages 13-19, and the Ballpark has been their home field since inception. In addition, the Ballpark served as a long-time home of Middlesex County Little League and Middlesex High School. In 2016, over a decade since the last time at the Ballpark, "Little League Day at Deltaville Ballpark" returned the sights and sounds of Little League baseball to Deltaville.

  • Other Events

    The Ballpark has played host to weddings, concerts, movie nights, productions, and even Donkey Softball games!

Renovation

Originally constructed in 1948, the ballpark last received an extensive renovation in 1975, and a minor renovation in 1996.

In 2015, plans began to once again renovate our historic Ballpark, to ensure it lives on for decades to come. The renovation includes replacement of the 68-year-old roof, construction of modern & accessible restrooms and concessions, and other repairs and improvements that will improve the experience usefulness of the facility, while carefully holding true to the historic style in ambiance of the historic structure.

What Others are Saying

Don't take our word for it. Here's what others have written about Deltaville Ballpark...

Thomas Boyd

Richmond Times-Dispatch

"On a whim, we turned onto Ballpark Road and soon saw before us an old wooden ballpark with a halo of bright lights staring down at the field within. At first we didnít see a soul, but we could hear voices from inside the ballpark, and as we passed through a wooden gate, our feet seemed mystically to step into another time."

Mike Holtzclaw

Daily Press

"A lot of baseball fans will offer you a laundry list of 'what's wrong with the game today.' They will tell you the players are overpaid and unresponsive to the fans. They will tell you that the game is too expensive for families and that the ballpark atmosphere has become too commercialized. They will lament that the sport has gotten away from its pastoral roots ...They have never been to a Deltaville Deltas game."

Clint Schemmer

Fredericksburg Freelance-Star

"[The Deltaville] community couldn't be morre intense about baseball, having supported the national pastime for decades. Deltaville Ballpark makes the heart sing. A wooden grandstand...looks like the exhibit hall at an old county fair. Batboys, hotdogs and half smokes, a nesting osprey atop one of the outfield light poles are all part of its appeal."

News & Updates

We are just bringing our web presence online, but we'll be sharing updates on the renovation soon!


In October 2016, the original 68-year-old roof was removed as part of the renovation of the Ballpark. Construction on the new roof is expected to be completed by December.
