 Liberty Park Stadium, Sedalia, Missouri (1936–1937) Wahconah Park is a city-owned baseball park located in Pittsfield, Massachusetts and nestled in a working-class neighborhood. Kiger Stadium has captured the magic and has built a love affair with the fans that hearkens back to the days of old. Hicks Field, North Carolina. Image from www.ballparksreviews.com

Kiger Stadium in Klamath Falls, Oregon is thought to be one of the remaining wooden baseball stadiums still in use today in the United States. The stadium was built in 1947 and play started in 1948.

Do you know of any older wooden baseball parks still in use today? Is there a list of such stadiums with the dates of construction and the year play began? Any suggestions where to search?

Thank you.

Olympic Stadium, Hoquiam, WA
by: Leah H

The Olympic Stadium was built and opened in 1938. The City of Hoquiam first got the idea for an all-wood stadium in the early 1930s when it applied for a Civil Works Administration grant. In 1932, the grant was approved. Construction began in early 1938 with the stadium officially opening to the public on Nov. 24, 1938.
The physical structure of Olympic Stadium is an old growth fir heavy-timber frame with cedar shingle siding. Built in a truncated U-shape with angled corners, the open portion of the 21/2 story grandstand faces east. This orientation was used so that fans and players would be somewhat sheltered from the wind and rain coming off the Pacific Ocean.
