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.
