This park was more or less destroyed when lightning hit the grandstand, splintering it, and causing it to burn in June 1890. After the 1890 season the team moved into League Park. The Spiders featured James Toy, the Cleveland Indian, who was the first Native American to play in the majors. After the Spiders moved out, the Cleveland Athletic Club fielded an amateur team here.
