New baseball field

image number:

P0055092

description:

This baseball field became Sembower Field.

The view is from the southeast looking toward the northwest. The white rectangle at left was probably a parking lot. Fee Lane runs along the far side of the white rectangle it intersects with Seventeenth Street just above and slight to the right of the center of the image. The homes along the far side of Fee Lane are where today (2015) Briscoe and McNutt Quadrangles are located.

The large square field (just above center and below the large white blob near the top of the image) is today (2015) the site of the IU athletic complex where building like Assembly Hall and Memorial Stadium are located.
