Finally, some mention of some history there! I checked out Warren Ballpark back in April and there was almost nothing mentioning its storied past, other than a plaque that dated the grandstand to a WPA era rebuild. While they did note that the park was the oldest in Arizona, tellingly “the oldest baseball stadium in the country” moniker was amiss. It’s pretty safe to say the holder of that title is undisputed: Rickwood Field in Birmingham.
