Lodi was one of the smallest markets to ever host a California League team, yet their club stayed in place, here at Lawrence Park, for 19 seasons. The park is just 12 miles from Stockton, a much larger market that recently built a new ballpark.
The stadium may well date to the founding of the California League franchise in 1966. It features a section of stadium seating behind the plate flanked by bleachers down each foul line.
I was unable to get into Lawrence Park on my 2004 visit.
