Fuessenich Park was the home of professional baseball for less than a season. The Torrington Braves joined the Class B Colonial League for its fourth season, 1950, but the league disbanded 16-Jul, with the Braves in fourth place, a game over .500.
The facility has been extensively renovated in recent years, and it now hosts college summer ball. The park got some attention when pitcher Stephen Strasburg, later of the Washington Nationals, pitched for the Twisters of the New England Collegiate Baseball League.
I was not able to get into Fuessenich Park on my 2005 visit.
