“Due to the overwhelming response and attendance from the grand opening ceremony, we wanted to ensure that everybody had another opportunity to visit the facility before the end of the season,” said Director of Public Works Michael Cox.

“The ball field will be open and youth will have a chance to hit the ball from the very spot that Babe Ruth hit his 500th home run on August 11, 1929.”

All visitors are welcome to tour the park and stop-by the Baseball Heritage Museum.

League Park is an important part of history, not just to Cleveland but to the sport of baseball. If you missed the grand opening join us on Saturday – tour the museum, hit the ball and run the bases.
