|Augusta GreenJackets (SAL) (1994–present)|
It is primarily used for baseball, and is the home field of the Augusta GreenJackets Minor League Baseball team of the Class A South Atlantic League. The GreenJackets plan to leave Lake Olmstead Stadium for a new ballpark built across the Savannah River in North Augusta in 2018.
The stadium has nearly 1,000 box seats, 830 reserved seats and over 2,500 general admission seats. In 2006, the Budweiser Party Pavilion was built down the right field line. This new area can host picnics anywhere from 20 people to as many as 500 people.
Before the 2007 season, the Cintas Cool Zone was constructed and the Fun Zone playground area down the left-field line was revamped.
