Parker Field



Behind-the-plate entrance to Parker Field, Aug-2006.

Today, buildings of Yakima Valley Community College rise behind the old ballpark.

The configuration of the outfield wall is similar to that of the 1950s.

Quick Facts:
Parker Field first saw professional use in the Western International League in 1937; the league became the Northwest League in 1955. Except for 1942 (and the war years from 1943-45 when the league suspended operations), Yakima had a team in the loop continuously until 1966.

When the Salem Dodgers moved to Yakima in 1990, they played at Parker Field for three seasons until a new facility could be built for them at the fairgrounds, two miles east on Nob Hill Boulevard.
