One of the true classic ballparks in America. They just don't build them like this anymore. With a large semi-circular covered grandstand, similar to New Haven's Yale Field, this place will bring you back in time. The outside facade is completely brick and appears to still be in great shape. The grandstand inside is made up of all individual fold down wooden chairs. While some are broken and others have paint peeling, this does not in any way detract from the park. Because of its old time feel, it was used in the filming of "A League Of Their Own" in the early '90's. The only problem with the grandstand is that it is not close enough to the field, but this is only a minor complaint. The main concourse area is located behind the grandstand on the outside of the park. There are several concession stands and a couple of games for kids to play. Underneath the grandstand there is also a small concourse that houses a small souvenir stand and a couple more concession stands. Concessions were rather inexpensive and quite varied. The grilled brats are especially tasty. This is certainly a park that would lend itself to organ music, but there is none played. Instead the team resorts to the same silly sound effects that most minor league teams play. If you are at all interested in old time ballparks, Bosse Field is a must-see.
