They built a baseball diamond with the homeplate on the Jackson and Sixth Street corner and the outfield towards the railroad tracks. Rightfield was shorter and leftfield went on across Seventh Street. The centerfield was much lower than homeplate, so the centerfielder was playing in a hole! If there was a train going by, they'd have to stop the game. It was too small actually. They had a granstand too, you know.
