Richmond Country Bank Ballpark (styled simply as Ballpark on station signage) is a closed station on the Staten Island Railway. The newest station on the railway, it opened on June 24, 2001 in conjunction with the Staten Island Yankees baseball season.
Located at Wall Street and Richmond Terrace, it is about 150 yards (140 m) west of Saint George along what used to be the North Shore Branch Line, which is not considered part of the main line of the railway. It is served by a one-track wye which extends to the southern trackway of the station's island platform. The northern trackway currently has no track and is unused.
It is located below the northern sidewalk of Richmond Terrace at the corner of Wall Street and consists of an island platform with a double wide staircase at the east end and ADA elevator at the west end. There are no turnstiles at this station.
Due to a budget crisis for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, this station was closed on June 18, 2010. As a result, a short walk from Saint George or the S40 or S44 buses is required to reach the stadium  and trains last served the station in September 2009.
