Daniel S. Frawley Stadium is a stadium in Wilmington, Delaware. It is primarily used for baseball, and is the home field of the Wilmington Blue Rocks minor league baseball team.
The park was originally known as Legends Stadium when it was built in 1993. It was renamed in 1994 for Wilmington mayor Daniel S. Frawley, who had pushed for a return of the Blue Rocks. The field is named separately for Judy Johnson, a local Negro league baseball star.
Construction began on November 1, 1992. The 20-acre (81,000 m2) stadium site was once part of a Christina River shipbuilding operation. The Delaware Stadium Corporation, a city and state entity, has owned the stadium since its construction.
The stadium seats 6,404 people. The Blue Rocks have a picnic area in the stadium named the Blue Moose Grill and a gift shop.
The stadium has also held many concerts, including Wilco, the Beach Boys, the Steve Miller Band, and the Round the Bases Tour, which featured Counting Crows, Live, and Collective Soul.
