Historic Wahconah Park Behind-the-Scenes Tour & Lunch


Former Pittsfield Mayor JIM RUBERTO

Wahconah Park, a city-owned baseball park in Pittsfield, Massachusetts nestled in a working-class neighborhood, is one of the last remaining ballparks in United States with a wooden grandstand. On the National Register of Historic Places, it was constructed in 1919 and seats 4,500.

In the July 23, 1990 issue of Sports Illustrated, author Daniel Okrent raved about the park in his column entitled Just A Little Bit of Heaven – Pittsfield's Wahconah Park is Baseball as it Oughta Be.

Join us for a picnic lunch and guided tour around this historic ballpark!
