Spring Means Baseball

With the beginning of the Spring season, we present this modern day image of the front entrance to Naval Station Norfolk's McClure Field.  Originally built between 1917 and 1919, the Field is one of the oldest brick baseball stadiums in the United States. 

We also present this rotary camera view of Opening Day, 1919 when the stadium was simply called the "Athletic Field."  This was the first baseball game played at the Field.
