Marion Schools Stadium
An overview of Marion Schools Stadium, Aug-2012.
Looking at the baseball seating and field from the football stands down the first-base line.
These stands may not be original; in any case, they are not even with the plate.
- Location: Stadium Drive off Stage Road, Marion, Va.
- Opened: Unknown
- Home team: Marion Mets, Appalachian League (1965-76); Marion Senior HS Scarlet Hurricanes, Southwest District Region IV
- Capacity: 1,000 (approx.)
For a dozen years, the Mets had their rookie league team at this high school field in Marion, Va., alongside the railroad tracks two blocks off the Lee Highway (US 11). While I am fairly certain the baseball field has not moved, there may have been a more substantial seating area during the years in which the field was used in the Appalachian League.
I took these photos while the ground crew was getting the football field ready for a scrimmage.
