History: The first ever Opening Night for Dawgs Baseball at Seaman Stadium took place on June 6, 2007 before a capacity crowd of 2650 fans in Okotoks, Alberta with a double rainbow to the southeast and magnificent view of the Rocky Mountains to the west. It was a perfect beginning in a stadium that is state of the art and among the finest at any level in the country. Home of the Okotoks Dawgs summer collegiate club and the JDawgs Youth Program, Seaman Stadium is the flagship facility in the Western Major Baseball League. Fans of the Dawgs have continued to flock to the Stadium, affectionately known as the Dawg Pound, as the club has averaged 1825 fans per game earning a ranking by Ballpark Biz as the number 1 draw, professional or otherwise, in the province of Alberta, the number 1 collegiate draw in Canada and among the top 10 summer collegiate draws in North America.
Seaman Stadium was built at a cost of $8 Million and bears the name of its major donors, Alberta energy entrepreneurs and philanthropists, Donald R. Seaman and the late Daryl K. (Doc) Seaman, part owner of the Calgary Flames NHL Hockey Club. The Stadium is unique in that it is dedicated entirely to summer collegiate and youth development baseball.
Seaman Stadium is one of the most fan and player friendly facilities on either side of the border. The Stadium is first class in every respect with a wide, wrap around concourse featuring full concessions, 2 BBQ patios, full service bars and an extensive family berm that wraps around the visitors side of the Stadium from 3rd base to the left field corner. There literally is not a bad seat in the house and from the moment fans enter under an expansive sign that reads Welcome to Seaman Stadium: Home of the Dawgs, the field of play with magnificent green natural grass is in constant view.
Visitors to Seaman Stadium will want to check out outstanding merchandise at the Dawgs General Store and a 45 X 30' Fairplay Scoreboard with a full color matrix and video board will help keep fans in the game.
And it's not only the fans who have enjoyed the friendly confines of Seaman Stadium. Since that June 6, 2007 Opening Night, the Dawgs have gone on to capture "back to back to back" championships in 2007, 2008 and 2009 with a Western Division pennant in 2010.
