Some interesting historical notes on the old ballpark. The stadium was modeled after the old Johnson Field in Johnson City New York, former home of the Binghamton Triplets once located where route 17 is now. Roger Maris came here as a member of Reading and once chased a ball down, going right through the outfield fence to do it. As we look at this photograph, a lot has changed, but in many ways much remains the same. Instead of tearing the old down and building anew, Williamsport renovated this beautiful classic, because really there is no better.
