Video: 10 amazing high school baseball fields
These diamonds truly are Fields of Dreams.
The 2020 high school baseball season has become one of uncertainty. Some states have canceled already while others hold out hope for a return to action.
Baseball fields have been left empty due to shelter-in-place orders, which deprives fans from taking in games at some of the best venues in the nation. MaxPreps is putting the spotlight on 10 of those facilities.
As seen in the video above, the tour includes Fromhold Field in San Pedro, Calif., home of Mary Star of the Sea
. The field is right on the coast with home runs finding a place in the Pacific Ocean.
In Oklahoma, Stigall Field, home of the Owasso
Rams, has gone through a recent facelift with new turf, a higher fence and a new scoreboard.
In the Northwest, Olympic Stadium in Hoquiam (Wash.)
takes fans back in time to the days of the Pacific Coast League in the 1940s before Major League Baseball had made its way to the West Coast. Built in 1938, the stadium still has the unique L-shaped wooden bleachers from when it opened nearly 80 years ago.
In the South, Germantown (Madison, Miss.)
has been recognized by the National Baseball Coaches Association as the field of the year. Carlo Crispino Stadium in Towson (Md.)
has won the NBCA honor twice. Other fields on the list include Hoyt S. Keeter Stadium in Shelby (N.C.)
and Viking Field at Loudoun Valley (Purcellville, Va.)
