The West Virginia Power, of the South Atlantic League Northern Division, play there home games at Appalachian Power Park in Charleston, West Virginia. At just under a 4 hour drive from PNC Park, this may be a locale for a die hard follower, more so than the casual fan. However, it is one of the first places you can get a glimpse of future stars.

The Power currently are sitting in second place in the division at 13-7. The Hickory Crawldads at 14-5 lead the way. The remainder of the division finishes up with the Delmarva Shorebirds at 11-8, Greensboro Grasshoppers at 9-10, Lakewood BlueClaws at 10-10, Hagerstown Suns at 9-11 and finally the Kannapolis Intimidators at 8-11.
