Coca-Cola Park, Allentown, PA*

Mr. DiNitto served as the Project Director and lead designer for this 10,000-seat minor league ballpark and new home of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs; Class AAA affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies. A walk around the stadium is to experience references to the diverse Lehigh County architectural context.  Historic Allentown building elements on the exterior.  Heavy steel framing of the main concourse and right field structures recall the steel industry past of neighboring Bethlehem,  and the vista of pastoral views and rolling hills beyond the left field concourse express the agricultural base of the community, as well.  Coca-Cola Park was distinguished as the 2008 Ballpark of the Year by Ballpark Digest, an internet-based publishing company.
