Groundbreaking black entrepreneur Gus Greely built this stadium for his Pittsburgh Crawfords Negro League team in the Hill District of Pittsburgh. Unfortunately, he was forced to lock out black workers from ballpark jobs in the 1938 season, angering fans and eventually leading to the end of the stadium and the team shortly thereafter.
