Few photographs exist of this amazing wooden pre-WWII ballpark and we're very happy for you to get some idea of what the ballpark looked like... though many have been through years of abuse before being saved by the Hamptons Library system. The Portsmouth Truckers were the first team to call this ballpark home as they played at Sewanee Stadium in the Class B Virginia League from 1920-1928 with such other franchises as Wilson NC, Kinston NC, Petersburg VA, Richmond VA and Rocky Mount NC along with two other franchises: Norfolk VA and Newport News VA which (including Portsmouth) gave the Virginia League, 3 franchises all playing within less than 18 miles of each other. With Hampton also joining in after the war… there were at times, 4 professional stadiums all simultaneously playing within just a 10 minute ride from each other. None of the franchises in the old Class B Virginia League during the "roaring twenties" had affiliations with Major League clubs. The concept the MLB farm system had not yet been conceived. Thus every team throughout the league (and nearly every league in existence until 1930) was a co-op franchise.
