The last time pro baseball had been played in Albany was just before the Georgia-Florida League folded in 1958. Cardinal Park had since been demolished. We're not sure when or where it was even located, and there doesn't appear to be any photographs of it in existance... but there was no longer a facility to play ball in, in Albany until the 1992 Complex was built. Old Tift Stadium... the home of Albany baseball before Cardinal Stadium was still standing, and in excellent condition, but had been converted to a "football only" stadium long before.
