League Park – A link to Cleveland’s baseball history

First home to the Cleveland Indians, Cleveland's League Park still stands as a monument to baseball history.

On the northeast corner of E. 66th Street and Lexington Avenue sits Cleveland’s League Park, where the city has played baseball since 1891. First built as wood structure before being re-built in steel in 1910, League Park has been home to the Cleveland Indians, the Cleveland Spiders and the Cleveland Buckeyes.

Now a public park, the field has recently seen a renovation that included a museum, a restoration of the ball field, and a community park featuring pavilions and walking trails. Get a taste of its history in our video, and take a trip yourself to see how we celebrated America’s pastime over a hundred years ago.
