Interior of the ballpark at St. Johnís University, Aug-2000.
Looking out at the ballpark from behind home plate.
St. Johnís field received a major upgrade in order to accommodate one season of New York-Penn League ball. The field, which used to point somewhat to the west, now points to a more orthodox northeast.
While the entire structure is aluminum, the place doesnít look bad for a temporary facility. The benches behind the plate and down parts of the base lines have seat backs. The bullpens are both located behind the right-field fence, with plexiglass windows so the pitching staff can see the game.
The Kings moved to a new park in the Coney Island section of Brooklyn in 2001. But this park wonít be abandoned Ė the Red Storm of St. Johnís will get to use the new, upgraded field for years to come.
The Red Storm renamed the field in 2007 to honor Jack Kaiser, a three-sport athlete from the 1940s who went on to serve as a coach for 21 years and as the schoolís athletic director for 23 years.
