Sherman Field was the home of baseball in the Nebraska state capital during the heyday of the minor leagues following the second World War. Dick Stuart hit 66 home runs for the Chiefs in 1956, playing his home games there.
Today, the field is most frequently used as a home base for the Post 3 American Legion team. Professional baseball in Lincoln has been played at Haymarket Park since 2001.
I was not able to get into Sherman Field on my 2005 visit.
