VA Memorial Stadium was built in 1954 right on the grounds of the VA Hospital of Chillicothe. This beautiful vintage stadium was designed to give the long term patients of the VA Hospital, a place to play softball and boost their morale during long stays. In 1993 when the Frontier League was in its infancy, they came to Chillicothe to examine the ballpark and were amazed at what they foundů a beautiful intimate stadium in a bucolic park like setting. The Frontier League didn't waste any time in signing Chillicothe up as one of its 1993 inaugural teams.
