New baseball field

image number:

P0055091

description:

This baseball field became Sembower Field.

The view is from the west looking east. The white rectangle at right was probably a parking lot. Fee Lane is running from left to right near the bottom of this image and it intersects with Seventeenth Street at left. The homes along the near side of Fee Lane are where today (2015) Briscoe and McNutt Quadrangles are located.

The old Hoosier Courts complex is located in the distance at right. Just to the right and above that complex, leading off into the distance, is a set of railroad tracks which are still there today. Crossing under the railroad tracks (just above Hoosier Courts and by way of a viaduct which is also still there today) is a white road which it Tenth Street.
