Notes: Built before the advent of night baseball, home plate faces the setting sun, which results in “sun delays” several times a season. It is only 374 feet to the center field wall while right center measures 430 feet to accommodate a football gridiron. The park is located on Wahconah Street, hence the name. The name Wahconah comes from a Mahican legend of an Indian maiden. Abandoned by the New York-Penn League at the end of the 2001 season, it has been the home to a series of independent and amateur teams. The park was the subject of the book Foul Ball by Jim Bouton. This photo was the inspiration for the dust jacket artwork.
