Cecil College is a community college in Cecil County located just outside of the town of North East, Maryland. It was founded in 1968 and was known as Cecil Community College until 2007.
The athletics programs at the college are known as the Seahawks. Nine sports teams on campus compete in Division II of NJCAA.
The baseball stadium is named after former long-time baseball coach and 2019 Cecil College Athletics Hall of Fame Inductee, Charlie "Dick" Brockell.
Food & Beverage 1
There are limited food options available at Brockell Field. There is a shared concession stand with the softball field but we do not know when it is open. We will award a 1, assuming that it is open on busy weekend games.
There is not much else in terms of atmosphere as it is a JUCO-level baseball game.
The team does have a PA announcer and plays walkup music for players. There is a large and weird variety of seating options around the field. There is a couple of small three-row bleachers, a couple of garden benches, regular park benches, park picnic tables, and a raised stone seating area. You can also sit on the grass to bring your chair.
The baseball field is located right next to some nice woods, that offer a nice view past the fences.
North East is located between Philadelphia and Baltimore and is simply named from its direction on the Maryland map.
Downtown North East offers many great shopping opportunities as well as wonderful food. Woody's Crabs and its sister restaurant across the street, Woody's Tacos are our choices for meals when in town.
The college is located across I-95 from the town and there are some other food options as well.
The attendees at most games are family members or other athletes. There may be a few residents who attend the games. The fans are knowledgeable and friendly to visitors.
The college is located almost directly off of I-95, one of the busiest and most well-known highways in the country so getting to campus will not be difficult.
Follow signs to the back of the campus and you will find the athletic field. There will be plenty of parking. We are dropping our rating down a bit as current construction might make your way back to the baseball field a bit of an adventure.
Return on Investment 5
The games are free to attend. That, along with the free parking, means that you can attend a good-level JUCO program at no cost.
The unique variety of seating options is an extra on its own.
Brockell Field is a basic pleasant baseball field located in a nice park-like setting. Although nothing fancy, it is a nice little stop for a baseball fan traveling along the I-95 corridor.
