After visiting Crater Lake National Park in early September 1997, I had options. I could have headed to Eugene, but I decided to stick with my original plan and go to Medford. I landed here at Miles Field, but I didn’t get to see much baseball. After two innings, the game was called when a storm I could see on my way down from Crater Lake finally reached Medford. The field was flooded and unplayable in a matter of minutes.
Miles Field was torn down in 2005, its location proving irresistible for a major retailer. However, the City of Medford built a new Miles Field about a mile to the south, and it hosts various levels of amateur baseball.
