Ballpark to WWII Prison to Ballpark Again

For those in the Hannibal (MO) area, you may already know this, but historic Clemens Field, home of the summer collegiate Hannibal Cavemen (Prospect League), once served as a World War II prison camp for German P.O.W.s for six weeks in September, 1944.  Read more and view then and now ballpark photos here.  Thanks to John Cerone for the link.
