Work has begun on a $650,000 skybox renovation at PeoplesBank Park, home of the York Revolution baseball team.

Manchester Township-based Wagman Construction Inc. is overseeing the construction, which is slated for completion in time for the start of the 2019 baseball season.

Wagman led the preconstruction and construction for the stadium, which opened in 2007.

The renovation project includes converting the stadium’s current White Rose Hall, a 3,000-square-foot space, into the 1741 Club.

UPMC Pinnacle has signed a three-year agreement to sponsor the 1741 Club, which will have capacity for about 125 people. The club also will have a balcony seating area with 88 seats.

Team officials said the club space will be the stadium’s first area for all-inclusive food and beverage service, giving both serious and casual baseball fans everything they need in one place. But the added convenience of the 1741 Club also comes with membership tiers, ranging from $1,750 for 20 passes to $3,500 for 45 passes and $5,000 for 75 passes.

The passes convert to game tickets and can be used at any of the team’s 70 home games. Members will be able to use all of the passes for one game, if they choose, or they can spread them across multiple games. The team is targeting smaller companies that may want to reward employees or bring potential clients to games.

“It is clear that people’s needs are changing when it comes to employee and client appreciation events,” Team President Eric Menzer said in April when the project was announced. “This gives us another tool in our toolbox to meet the needs of those customers.”

As part of the club conversion, the team is renovating five of its skyboxes along the first base side to give customers more modern rental options to host corporate or other organizational events.

Murphy & Dittenhafer Inc. of York designed the renovation.
