Baseball in Mount Vernon

Veterans Park

aka Vernon Park
aka Braves Field

Veterans Park hosted the Mount Vernon franchise (usually called the Kings) from 1947 through 1954. The ballpark was apparently constructed before the 1947 season. It appears that the stadium was also called Braves Field and Vernon Park. Mount Vernon still has a Veterans Park, but it does not currently contain a baseball diamond.

Veterans Park hosted Mississippi-Ohio Valley League All-Star Games in 1949 and 1951.


Source of Name: The park is a war memorial. (The other names are similarly obvious.)
