Welcome to the West Virginia Black Bears! Our mission is to provide an affordable, safe, fun and memorable time at Monongalia County Ballpark to all Black Bears fans.
Located in Granville, West Virginia, Monongalia County Ballpark is home to the West Virginia Black Bears. Monongalia County Ballpark, which has 2,500-seats, opened in 2015, and received the 16th Annual Ballpark of the Year Award from baseballparks.com in 2015, given to the best new or substantially rebuilt ballpark each year.
In 2015, the West Virginia Black Bears became the first minor league baseball team in Morgantown as an affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Since 2021, the Black Bears have been members of the MLB Draft League, a showcase league for draft-eligible players.
The Black Bears front office is run by General Manager Leighann Sainato. The Black Bears will soon be offering several internships available to individuals interested in working in the front office.
Our number one goal has always been to provide the fans at Monongalia County Ballpark with a fun, safe, and memorable experience. To achieve this goal, our employees must be reliable, dependable, professional, and well-mannered. Our employees are dedicated to creating an exciting and family friendly atmosphere at Monongalia County Ballpark.
