Take me out to the ball gameā€¦ Fans pack the stands at Parkway Field in 1942 for a Louisville Colonels game. Parkway Field, at Eastern Parkway and Brook Street, was built in 1923 and was home to professional and collegiate baseball until 1998. Roof supports at the new Jim Patterson Stadium are built with green bricks from Parkway Field's left feld wall and infeld dirt was taken from Parkway and placed at Patterson Stadium when it was built in 2005. This photo is from the University of Louisville Herald-Post collection of the University Archives and Records Center. UARC collections document the history and life of UofL, its students, faculty and staff. To review our extensive collection of archived images, go to Share your favorite Parkway Field memory.
