This awesome little field of dreams is located in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley. Built In the midst of farmland and with the outfield lined by a cornfield, it reminds you of the movie staring Kevin Kosher. The creation of Limeport Baseball Stadium was mainly the work of one man, Howard, "Lefty" Fegely. Fegley, also called "Mr. Baseball". In 1935, he built a stadium for local teams to practice and play games.
The field slopes upwards towards center field, the result of a large piece of bedrock that couldn't be blasted.
The Center field wall is an impressive 485 feet from home plate, which is one of the farthest distances possible. According to historical records, the only person to hit a home run was Alex Sabo, who went on to play in the majors with the Washington Senators.
The expansive center field dimensions are reminiscent to James Gaffney's Tiger Stadium of 1915. Featuring 6 small trees and flag pole, all within play, this quaint little park challenges even the best home or visiting center fielders.
