Tinker Field History Plaza now open to public

0

The Tinker Field History Plaza has officially opened to the public.

The new park is in recognition of the 100 years of Orlando baseball and Civil Rights history that has taken place in the City of Orlando. Tinker Field hosted some of baseball history’s most influential figures, including Babe Ruth and Jackie Robinson as well as Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.

The City of Orlando recognized Tinker Field as an Orlando Historic Landmark in 2015. Click HERE for more information on the park.

Plans for the new memorial park were released in October, 2016 and we shared them HERE. The space is meant to give the public a space to “learn, gather, reflect, and celebrate” and includes a series of plaques, monuments, refurbished stadium seats, and a State of Florida Historical Marker.

Tinker Field is located just behind Camping World Stadium at 287 S. Tampa Avenue [GMap].
