Louisville teams played in several Eclipse parks from the 1870's to 1922. An 1892 map shows a covered grandstand down the 3B line with seating along the 1B line was in a long bleacher section extending from near home plate to the RF wall. The clubhouse sat along the LF line. A small bleacher section was in LF. The park was enclosed with a high board fence. The catcher faced NW. The park burned down on September 27, 1882, but the grandstand was rebuilt in time for a doubleheader the following day. In 1893, the park was rebuilt across the street. Another Eclipse Park burned down on August 12, 1899. The fourth Eclipse Park burned down November 20, 1922. Britt Park currently occupies the site.
