Union Street Grounds

Also Known As: Hop Bitters Grounds
Location: Rochester, NY
N. Union Street at Weld Street.
Capacity: 1,500 est
Weld turns into Kenilworth Terrace. Hop Bitters was a tonic. The ball club attempted to represent a company rather than a city. This type of advertising failed because the newspapers of the day refused to call the club by its product, but used the city moniker.
Used by: Albany Capital City/Rochester Hopbitters, Rochester Flour Cities
