LaGrave Field is an abandoned baseball park in Fort Worth, Texas. It was primarily used for baseball and was the home field of the Fort Worth Cats independent minor league baseball team. Its original version was the home of the predecessor Panthers/Cats team of the Texas League from 1926–1958; the American Association in 1959; and then in the Texas League again in 1964. It also served as the part-time home of the Dallas Rangers during 1960–1962. The ballpark was rebuilt during 2001 and opened in 2002 after the club played one season at Lon Goldstein Field.Use our Fort Worth tour itinerary maker website to arrange your visit to LaGrave Field and other attractions in Fort Worth.
The ballpark sits on land bounded by a parking lot and then North Calhoun Street (southwest, first base); Northeast 6th Street (if extended) (southeast, right field); Northeast 7th Street (if extended) (northwest, third base); and the banks of a branch of the Trinity River (northeast, left field). The imaginary line running from home plate through second base runs roughly east-southeast.
During the team's inaugural 2014 season, LaGrave Field hosted home games for the Fort Worth Vaqueros FC of the National Premier Soccer League.
LaGrave Field opened in 1926 replacing Panther Park, which had been opened in 1911, and was located on the "west side of North Main Street, a few blocks from" the eventual LaGrave Field. Panther Park, in turn, had replaced Hayne's Park, located "in the 'Prairie' area near downtown".
LaGrave Field Reviews
My son played at LaGrave for summer select ball. It was very cool for him to play at a field where so many of the greats played! If you're a baseball fan, at least go by to say you've been there! more »
Agree with all the high ratings, but the baseball league (ULB) the Cats played in is defunct. No 2015 baseball here. Very sad. Fort Worth loved the Cats. more »
It's ok if you're a bird or stray cat or a bored Urbex enthusiast. Although there really isnt much to see these days. Area is on the decline in the way of local businesses, but the city still utilizes this site to transport those summoned to court for jury duty during daylight hours.
Great trail right behind it .
