The new Panther Park was across North Main, two blocks from the old site. It was later named La Grave Field, after the owner of the Fort Worth franchise, Paul La Grave. A 1927 map shows a large steel frame grandstand with wooden roof and floors. A small bleacher section sat along the LF line, and a bleacher section sat in right CF. The catcher faced SE. A fire on May 15, 1949 gutted the grandstand; the following day, heavy rains and floods further damaged the park. It was rebuilt by opening day of the 1950 season. A 1950 map shows a narrower grandstand extending nearly to the fences along both foul lines. A much broader area of steel bleachers ran in front of the grandstand for its entire length.
Used by: Fort Worth Panthers, Fort Worth Cats, Dallas-Fort Worth Rangers
