The home for the Atlantic League’s Charleston Dirty Birds in West Virginia will have a new name as GoMart Ballpark will take effect starting with the 2023 season to start a 10-year deal.
The stadium has been named Appalachian Power Park since its inception in 2005. It was home to the South Atlantic League’s West Virginia Power from 2005 to 2020 and the Atlantic League’s Charleston Dirty Birds for the past two seasons. The stadium has also hosted the South Atlantic League All-Star games in 2009 and 2019, in addition to the annual West Virginia state tournament.
“GoMart has stepped up to the plate big-time,” said Dirty Birds owner Andy Shea. “It is great to have an iconic West Virginia brand attached to our home ballpark.”
The Dirty Birds start their season in April 2023 and will play 66 home games. The Atlantic League is a Partner League for Major League Baseball.
“We are excited for GoMart Ballpark to make its own history as it coincides with the installation of a beautiful synthetic turf field that will showcase Dirty Birds’ games and so much more,” said Charleston Mayor Amy Goodwin.
