When you think of Corning New York you think… glass? Perhaps those who are a little more technologically advanced, will consider fiber optics. Baseball? Probably not your first thought or even your last, but Corning was once a home to Single-A NY-Penn League Baseball. The NY-Penn League did 2 stints at old Corning Memorial Stadium (though the league was called the PONY League when baseball started here and didn‘t become known as the NY-Penn League until 1957). This facility may not have been the perfect venue for baseball, after all it is a football grandstand and doesn’t lend itself well to the bucolic game. Still, this 1948 structure is a rather impressive one and we think you’ll agree as well, as we discover at the history of Corning baseball here at Memorial Stadium.
