|Dietz Memorial Stadium played host to a professional
baseball team in the late 1940's in the Colonial League. An artificial
turf football field now sits where baseball once was played. But apparently
the current grandstand dates back to the time when baseball was played here.
It was originally built as a football stadium, so the configuration
for baseball was probably not ideal. The grandstand shown above was
situated on the first base side of the field and there were no permanent
outfield fences. A grass incline (which can still be seen) marked the
edge of the playing field. Unfortunately, there is no historical marker
here to indicate that professional baseball was ever played on this site.
