Big Top Baseball, the owner of the Green Bay Bullfrogs, unveiled Capital Credit Union Park, as their new stadium in the Village of Ashwaubenon starting in 2019, at a public event Tuesday night.
The new stadium will be located at 2231 Holmgren Way, and will host baseball, soccer, and additional community events. The ballpark will have a capacity of 3,359 for athletic events, 7,000+ for concerts and community events and will feature club and suite space for up to 300 guests.
Capital Credit Union Park re-uses the old CTI Concrete building, a 17,000 square foot warehouse. The existing building will be renovated and will include a team store, concessions, restrooms, suites, a club space, locker rooms, a team office, and a hotel lobby-style ticket office.
Other unique design elements of Capital Credit Union Park include a 19 foot, 19 inch outfield wall in right field, paying homage to the year the Green Bay Packers were founded. The venue will also host a to-be-named summer collegiate soccer team, as well as a variety of athletic and social events.
“Our hope is that we come up with a wide enough array of offerings at the facility that we really do have something for everyone,” said Vern Stenman, President of Big Top Baseball. “That’s going to appeal to different parts of the community, and I think that’s really our pitch.”
Additionally, Big Top Baseball also announced they are launching a “Name the Team Contest” fan initiative to encourage community input to re-name the Bullfrogs ahead of next season.
