Baseball in West Frankfort

Memorial Stadium

Memorial Stadium hosted the West Frankfort franchise of the Illinois State and Mississippi-Ohio Valley Leagues from 1947 through 1950. Memorial Stadium was constructed late in 1946 in anticipation of the 1947 ISL season.

Memorial Stadium hosted the Illinois State League All-Star Game in 1947 and an Mississippi-Ohio Valley League All-Star Game in 1950.


Source of Name: Not enough information. West Frankfort's a mining town and has many memorials to coal miners. This memorial may have been another of those, or may have been a war memorial.
