Opened in 1908, the park was destroyed by fire at the end of the first season. Team owner A. S. Burkart rebuilt the park in 1909. Since his team had won the league championship in 1908, the town named the park for him. The rebuilt park had a larger grandstand, and was considered to be one of the state's finest ballparks. The park was flooded in 1912 when the Saginaw River overflowed, and the grandstand was destroyed by fire in 1913. It was rebuilt during the season. The site is now the Davenport Avenue city dump. Mary Street does not exist today.
Used by: Saginaw White Sox/Jackson, Saginaw, Saginaw/Marion (OH), Saginaw Wa-was, Saginaw Krazy Kats, Saginaw Trailers, Saginaw Ducks, Saginaw Aces
