Latta Park Baseball Field

Item Type: 
Object Year: 
S. H. Kress

Baseball was the sport in Charlotte as well as the United States at the beginning of the 1900s. In Dilworth, there were at least three ball fields. In 1902 the 4 C's granted a 10-year lease for the fairgrounds and the baseball field seen here. Located on the far end of East Boulevard, maps suggest home plate was east of Lennox Avenue. The park probably extended from near East Boulevard to Lennox Avenue.
