The end of Hagerstown’s Municipal Stadium

Hagerstown’s Municipal Stadium was built in 1930 and last used for minor league baseball in 2020. I was there in July 1988 to see the US Olympic Team play the Taiwan team. I recall that it was 102 degrees! It seemed like an old stadium even then.

I posted about it here:

I attempted to go to a game about 10 years ago. There was a brief rain storm around 5:00 pm but they had to cancel the game. I guess there was no drainage.

Willie Mays played his first pro game there:

Future MVP Bryce Harper played for the Hagerstown Suns in 2011.
