Innovative Field is the 10,607-seat stadium that serves as home of the Rochester Red Wings Triple-A league baseball team. It is located on the NorthWest side of downtown near Kodak Headquarters. It was known as Frontier Field until the naming rights were acquired by Innovative Solutions in October 2022.
Built in 1996 for $35.3 million, primarily as a baseball stadium, the stadium was also the home of the Rochester Raging Rhinos until the opening of Paetec Park in 2006. The Rochester Rattlers lacrosse team also played home games here for two seasons before moving to Paetec Park. In 2013 they also hosted many local hockey teams for Frozen Frontier
Concessions include the usual ballpark fare like hots (Zweigle's, of course), peanuts, burgers, nachos, cotton candy and beer; Not-so-usual fare like pasta, crepes, and pulled-pork nachos (ed. Yes, it was as good as it sounds but is no longer available); and Rochester/WNY favorites like Garbage Plates, Beef on Weck, and Rohrbach's beer.
Cheap entertainment tip: The promotions schedule often includes a firework display after Friday home games for the Red Wings. If you aren't interested in catching a game, but would like to see the fireworks, take your car up to the top of the nearby High Falls Parking Garage. You'll have a great view, and after the display you will be able to make it out of the garage before the stadium spills over and mobs the streets. Parking is $4, but if you're exceptionally cheap you can park elsewhere and ride the elevator to the top. Also be sure to get a good look at the High Falls while you're in the area.
