Wahconah Park is a real one-of-a-kind place. One of the last remaining wooden ballparks in the country, it’s also one of only two in which the batter faces the setting sun in the early evening (the other is Sam Lynn Ballpark in Bakersfield, California). Depending on your point of view, the ballpark is either a run-down relic ready for the wrecking ball or a charming, quirky slice of baseball history. The main grandstand, complete with a full roof, really is constructed of wood. Plastic owls dangle from the rafters to thwart birds from nesting, and the “box” seats are simply folding chairs in the first few rows. With its ancient facilities and its setting in a mostly residential neighborhood, seeing a game here is a wonderful trip back in baseball history.
