Parade Stadium

Minneapolis, MN

Team: Minneapolis Millers League: Great Central League

The site that is now Parade Stadium, was actually Minneapolis' first public football stadium, first being used in the 1920s. A baseball diamond was built next to it. In 1988, the park board collaborated with the Walker Art Center to build a sculpture garden on the land next to the stadium. In 1990, it was decided that since the sculpture garden was so popular, that it should expand. The garden expanded onto the baseball diamond. Since the football stadium was rarely used, the diamond was relocated there. In 1994, thanks to the popularity of the Northern League, the Great Central League formed, with the Minneapolis Millers as their flagship team. They lasted one season. This park is clearly suited for amateur baseball only.
