Winner of the 2010 Ballpark of the Year Award from Baseballparks.com as the best new ballpark.

Part of a $210 million downtown mixed-use upscale baseball park, condo, office, hotel and retail development with a movie theater. Billy Prim and Mandalay Baseball planned to build the best ballpark in minor league baseball. The baseball park is one of the most expensive minor league ballparks built in the United States in the past ten years. The ballpark includes every amenity.

BB&T Ballpark is the most high-tech ballpark in minor league baseball and is one of only four minor league ballparks with an LED message board on the outfield wall. The ballpark has one of the largest scoreboards in minor league baseball. An audio/video staff of 250 people control LED signs, a large high definition video board, flat panel TVs on the concourse and in the suites and a custom designed sound system. The LED message board on the outfield wall is 195 feet/59.5 meters long and 6 feet/1.8 meters tall. 80 miles of wire connect the ballpark's audio/video systems to a massive entertainment control center.

The ballpark features a bar and upscale club & restaurant on the third floor and private gated parking with a separate marble lobby entrance for V.I.P. members. A unique feature of this ballpark are the dugout suites. These suites allow groups to use the player's tunnel to access their seats in an extended dugout beside the player's dugout. A signature concourse bridge with batting cages below, allows people on the highway to see inside the ballpark. The ballpark features a six storey executive suite tower with office space, a restaurant, ticket windows, the visitors locker room on the ground level and the largest team store in minor league baseball.
