The Newark Pilots are proud to call the historic Colburn Park their home. Originally opened in the 1930s, the ballpark is named after Village of Newark trustee E. Douglass Colburn, and has been home to many professional and collegiate baseball teams over the past four decades.
In 1968, the Newark Co-Pilots, affiliates of the Seattle Pilots, began play in the New York-Penn League, and were the first professional baseball team to play at Colburn Park. Although the Seattle franchise moved to Milwaukee to become the Brewers in 1970, the Co-Pilots stayed affiliated with the club until 1978. In 1975, the Co-Pilots won the New York-Penn League Championship. Famous alumni of the Newark Co-Pilots include Hall of Famer Robin Yount, who played for the 1973 Co-Pilots after being drafted third overall in the 1973 MLB First-Year Player Draft.
Today, Colburn Park has undergone several renovations. The biggest addition is the new scoreboard in left field. New lights, a new entranceway and new seats have also been added.
