A 1912 map shows a good-sized grandstand. A 1927 map shows a 'ball park' about two blocks north of the Monongahela River, on the same site as the park shown on the 1912 and 1918 maps. This park had a steel frame grandstand and a bleacher section extending well down the RF line. The catcher also faced NNE. By 1950, the ballpark had become East-West Stadium, and was used for football.
