Baseball in Belleville

Athletic Field

Belleville Athletic Field hosted the Belleville Stags of the Illinois State League and the Mississippi-Ohio Valley League (both MWL predecessors) from 1947 through 1949. The ballpark was sold to Cathedral High School during the 1949 season; this may be its remnant. No construction information seems to be available.
