Boulevard & Parker Field - 1960

As the debate continues on whether to build a new baseball stadium in Richmond, and where, let's take a trip back to March of 1960. We were still 6 years away from the Richmond Braves, and Parker Field was home to the Richmond Virginians. The Virginians were a AAA team affiliated with the New York Yankees at the time. They finished the 1960 season with 82 wins and 70 losses, their best record of the 11 seasons they played in Richmond (1954 to 1964).
