Located in Eastlake, little more than a dozen miles from Cleveland, is Classic Park, a minor league baseball park that is home to the Lake Erie Captains. Opened just prior to the regular summer 2003 season, Class Park is a modest semi-urban facility, and bears some stylistic similarities to Progressive Field, Home of the Cleveland Indians (with which the Lake Erie Captains franchise is affiliated).

The ballpark is located at the juncture of State Route 91 and Vine Street, and is linked both to a large parking area (by pedestrian bridge) and an affiliated convenience shopping center catering to the families that are the typical game attendees. With a capacity of 7300+, the ballpark has a broad open-air design with tiered seating ringed about the infield, offering great visibility of the action on the diamond. Upper level boxes cater to corporate fans, while grassy sloped earthen berms around the outfield provide more casual seating options for mild summer nights.

Like many other family-oriented entertainment venues, Classic Park tries to present the greatest possible variety of experience to its customers. In addition to the typical ballpark concessions one might expect, Classic Park offers some additional local fan favorites (like pierogies). The ballpark's concession stands and team shop carry a broad range of merchandise, gift items, apparel and mementos.

Classic Park's management keeps the annual season schedule packed with varied events and attractions, ranging from giveaways, fireworks and rock concerts to circus appearances, discounts, family packages and food promotions.
