Product Description



Duncan Park is a stadium in Spartanburg, South Carolina. It was primarily used for baseball and was most recently the home of the Spartanburg Spinners. The ballpark has a capacity of 3,000 people and opened in 1926.

Duncan Park Stadium hosted its first game on July 8, 1926. 2,500 people watched as the Spartanburg Spartans defeated the Macon Peaches 5-1. Nearly 21,000 fans attended the deciding Game 5 of the 1936 “World Series” of American Legion baseball at Duncan Park when Spartanburg defeated Los Angeles. That figure remains the largest crowd to watch a sporting event in Spartanburg. Duncan Park also hosted the 1938 “World Series” of American Legion baseball. In 1937, the New York Yankees, featuring Joe DiMaggio and Lou Gehrig, played an exhibition game in Duncan Park on their way to New York from spring training. Other major league standouts played in Duncan Park on their way to the show, including Larry Bowa, Ryne Sandberg, Dale Murphy, and Tom Glavine (Maultsby). When Shibe Park in Philadelphia was demolished, Duncan Park received many seats from the old stadium.
