THE ORIGINAL LITTLE LEAGUE FIELDS IN VICTORIA:
SCOTT AND SANTLEBEN
Every time I drive past the old Little League Fields in Riverside Park I get a little sad. All I see now are backstops in the middle of empty fields that used to be Santleben (if I spelled it correctly) and Scott Fields, not to mention the awesome concession stands. I thought the stands were EPIC for Little League fields. I still, remember the sun blaring in my eyes when trying to hit in Scott field as the sun went down. I had some epic battles with Brannan Paving, Dicks Food Store, and Tortilla King, just to name a few teams. What Little League team did you play for back in the day?
WAGNER AND HERNANDEZ AND FIELD 1:
Before you got to the big boy fields you started in Wagner and Hernandez. I can still smell the manure of the pasture just past the outfield fence of Hernandez Field. While the City has built over the old Wagner and Hernandez site. You can still see remnants of Field 1 which was located behind Elder Field. Field one was mostly used for T-Ball games.
From what I can remember, this was the field that hosted the most Little League playoff games in Victoria. It was definitely the biggest when it came to distance to the outfield fence. It was also the best manicured as well. What is the best memory you have from the original Little League Fields in Victoria? Let us know in the comments of this Facebook status.
