Save Stengel

The historic landmark, Stengel Field, suffered significant water damage to the stadium, which was condemned in 2011 and later demolished in 2015. The stadium was built in the 40’s and now is replaced by temporary aluminum bleachers with no more locker rooms or offices that were once part of this iconic ball field.  We need your help and support to rebuild and restore this great American Ballpark, to continue the legacy of Casey Stengel and to once again fill the stands of Stengel Field.
