Work on historic Cleveland ballpark nears finish

ASSOCIATED PRESS

CLEVELAND — Cleveland’s League Park, where the Indians played in the early 1900s, should be ready for baseball again this summer.

Work on restoring and renovating what’s left of the old ballpark on Cleveland’s east side should be done by mid-July. The city is putting $6.3 million into the project that will include an artificial turf baseball field where Babe Ruth and Cy Young once played.

Nearly all of League Park was torn down in 1951. But the first baseline grandstand wall and a ticket house that still stand are being renovated.

The Plain Dealer newspaper reports that city leaders say the new field could end up hosting high school games and adults who want to play on the historic site.
