Altoona is home to the Altoona Curve Minor League Baseball team. The Altoona Curve joined the Blair County attractions list April 15, 1999 when they hosted the Bowie Baysox in a 6-1 victory in front of 6,171 fans. The Altoona Curve play in Blair County Ballpark, located just off Interstate 99, in the heart of Lakemont Park, Altoona. The ballpark was built in 1998 and was designed and modeled after a railroad roundhouse, tying in to the history of Altoona. The Ballpark seats just over 7,200 fans on two levels.
