Pompano Beach Municipal Park is part of Pompano Community Park, a 43˝-acre complex that includes other baseball and softball diamonds, basketball courts, an aquatic center, and other recreational facilities.
A dozen years after the city built the stadium, the New York Mets moved in as part of an expanded Florida State League. They played there for five years; later, the Cubs moved a franchise from Key West and used the facility for three seasons.
A fan watching an amateur Federal League game in August 2003 told me that the park did have a press box when it was used for professional ball. Today, the park is used for the Federal League as well as by a private baseball school.
