Another Lost Ballpark



Entrance to Bangorís Memorial Park Stadium, Aug-2008.

When there was a baseball configuration here, this was the likely field orientation looking out past home plate.

Today, high school baseball is played on this field just south of the football stadium.

Quick Facts:
The explosion in minor league baseball following the second World War reached down into even the smallest towns. Bangor, Pa., a relatively small borough six miles west of the Delaware River and ten miles south of Stroudsburg, got itself a team in the Class D North Atlantic League for that loopís last two seasons.

Itís been quite a while since the original stadium structure was removed here. The entrance gate to the stadium still exists, but there is no longer a baseball grandstand, or even a baseball field, on the actual site. The stadium is now reserved for football, soccer, and track, primarily for the high school teams, the Bangor Slaters. The town is best known for its slate deposits and quarries.

The Slatersí current baseball field is depicted in the third photo above. It is located immediately to the south of the football field.
