Baseball in Paris

Lakers Stadium

aka (originally) Twin Lakes Park

Lakers Stadium hosted the Paris Lakers in the Mississippi-Ohio Valley and Midwest Leagues from 1950 through 1959. The stadium is just a small part of the larger Twin Lakes Park. The ballpark is still in use.

Lakers Stadium hosted the second Mississippi-Ohio Valley League All-Star Game in 1951.


Source of Name: Named after the team, which is in turn named after the location. Twin Lakes Park is a sprawling park around two artificial lakes which define the northern boundary of Paris.
