Pullman Park

Brief Hitory

Built in 1934 and rebuilt in 2008, Pullman Park hosted minor league baseball and Negro League games from the late 1930s to the early 1950s. Notable players included Negro League Hall of Famer Josh Gibson and white players Lou Gehrig, Joe Dimaggio, and Whitey Ford. The ballpark was named after the Pullman-Standard Company's railroad car manufacturing plant, which was next to the park from 1902 to 2005. Starting in 2009, Pullman Park will be home to the Butler Blue Sox of the Summer Collegiate Prospect League.
