Location: The ballpark faced a few degrees west of due south. East 29th Street ran directly behind home plate and the grandstand on the north side of the field. York (Greenmount) Avenue ran from behind the grandstand beyond third base on the east side of the park. Barclay Street ran from behind the grandstand beyond first base on the west side of the park. The outfield was enclosed by Barclay Street in right field, York (Greenmount) Avenue in a small part of left field and by what was to become 28th Street in left and center fields.
