Go For Good Times with the Charleston Dirty Birds and GoMart
Dirty Birds’ Home Venue Renamed GoMart Ballpark
In November of 2022, GoMart Inc. and the Charleston Dirty Birds agreed to a 10-year deal to change the name of the Dirty Birds home venue to GoMart Ballpark.
“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 stadium had 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 High School Tournament.
“As a West Virginia-based company, we love supporting other organizations across the state,” said GoMart President Phil Shuman. “We look forward to this partnership with the Charleston Dirty Birds.”
