Originally Red Elm Park, Russwood Park was home to Memphis professional baseball from 1899 to 1960. Primarily home to the Memphis Chicks, a charter member of the Southern Association, Russwood hosted nearly 70% of all players and managers enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame, including Babe Ruth. For years local entrepreneurs Ed Barry, James T "Doc" Prothro, and Frank Longinotti owned, operated and/or managed the Memphis Chicks. In addition to baseball, Russwood hosted other events, including one of Elvis Presley's concerts. Fire destroyed the park on April 17, 1960.
