DID YOU KNOW..?
Labatt Park, where the London Majors play was voted Canada’s favourite baseball field and is the “oldest continually operating baseball grounds in the world”? They’ve been around since 1877 and had the Guiness Book’s award for it. Unfortunately, the folks at Guiness renamed a field in Clinton, Massachusetts the oldest baseball field in the world when it was discovered that Labatt Park’s home plate is not in the original position that it was in 1877 – though it stayed within the same field. Wherever home plate lies, the field is full of some wonderful history and is definitely worth a visit.
