Sport York, York Revolution to Host NCAA Division III Regional

Regional marks the third time NCAA Division III postseason baseball will be held at the stadium

Ever since it hosted its first regular season baseball game in 2007, PeoplesBank Park in York, Pennsylvania, has been one of the best ballparks in baseball.

It will get another chance to shine from May 17-21 as the York County Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Sport York program and the York Revolution are bringing the 2018 NCAA Division III Baseball Mid-Atlantic Regional to PeoplesBank Park.
