League Stadium was built in 1894 but was totally rebuilt for the movie “A League of Their Own”. After much of the stadium structure was removed in 1985, the production company rebuilt it to their own specifications in 1991, including a post-up scoreboard in left field. An electric scoreboard was added when the Dubois County Dragons started using the park for Heartland League games.
In 1991, the stadium portrayed a long-gone field in Illinois.
In its current state, League Stadium has no outfield advertising except that which was placed for the movie. I got some good photos by shooting through knotholes in the outfield wall, which may have been deliberately placed when the movie was made.
Ironically, the Dubois County Dragons moved to Kenosha, Wis., for the 2003 season, and they played at a ballpark that actually was used for the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League.
Most recently, the ballpark has been seen hosting the Prospect League, a college summer league.
