More About Trum Field
That all-American sound—the crack of a bat sending a baseball into outfield—has been ringing out at Trum Field since its founding in 1903. But since a 2008 renovation, the dozens of little league and school teams that play here have done so in a much spiffier setting. Gorgeous real turf spans the 4.8-acre complex, which is home to two baseball diamonds, basketball courts and spacious bleachers. Like a crown, the new Marshall Sloane Field House sits before it all. It's arching roof creates shade for performers at community events, and below it houses clean restrooms. New landscaping and benches along Broadway transformed what was once just a chain-link fence into appealing public space.
In addition to providing much needed field space for local and student athletes, the field is also used for City events including the annual July 4th Fireworks.
