Historic Ballpark /Bouton Haunt, Underwater

Posted in Baseball, Natural Disasters at 12:07 am by

In 1996, I had the pleasure of attending a Pittsfield Mets game at Wahconah Park, the venerable stadium that in recent years has been the beneficiary of Jim Bouton’s patronage and since 2005, served as the home venue for a Dan Duquette owned-NECBL team. However, after heavy rains in the Northeast, writes The College Baseball Blog’s Michael Radomski, “what was once a tourist attraction for many sports fans has now turned into a tourist attraction for water sports.”

Radio Norwich’s overnight man was unavailable for comment.

    My girlfriend’s from Stockbridge. She disputes the idea that a trip to a Pittsfield Mets game could have been a “pleasure.”

    Awesome link, the photos are amazing.

    Wahconah park was notable for its sun delays and mysterious power outages when I lived near there. Good to see they’re still innovating.
