Checking in on McKeon Park before the 2019 season

by Andrew in


On Sunday, May 19, we drove by McKeon Park in Hyannis to check on the status of their renovations.

Good news - the field is looking great! The new home and away dugouts are still in progress since they only have a concrete foundation. There's no sign of the new Daktronics scoreboard, but maybe that's being installed closer to opening day.

Funds for the updates to McKeon Park were from the Barnstable Town Council through the Community Preservation fund ($750,000), and the Yawkey Foundation ($100,000). The estimate for the entire project is $1.75 million. According to the Barnstable Patriot (Dec 18, 2018), future updates will include new bleachers and handicap-accessible levels.

Brad Pfeifer, president of the Harbor Hawks, says the goal is to bring McKeon Park up to the same quality as a small minor league facility.
