Product Description


Chatham, Massachusetts

Veterans Field has a capacity of approximately 2,000 people; however, much of the seating is informal around the perimeter of the field on grass or lawn chairs and the park can accommodate close to 8,500 people informally. This is achieved because of where Veterans Stadium is situated. The park sits in a natural bowl which forms a natural stadium around the stadium in addition to the permanent seating. Admission to Veterans Field is free; however, to offset this are donations and a raffle held by the Anglers for small prizes.

The stadium originally utilized a local high school building adjacent to the field as a clubhouse area for the Athletics. However with its closure the team has been left without a formal clubhouse forcing players to change in their cars. The loss of the old school building also eliminated the stadium's bathroom facilities as well necessitating portable toilets being placed on the first base side of the field. Night games were first played in 1963 at Veterans Field.

Veterans Field is also used by the Chatham High School baseball team and l soccer teams during the Anglers offseason. The field also features a play area with a wooden playground on the first base side for children to utilize during the games.

Used (1979) 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" standard size chrome postcard.
