Description

Bush Stadium has been known by several names, hosted many teams, in various baseball leagues but the most prominent of these may have been the years during which this majestic stadium hosted the Indianapolis-based Negro League franchises. This beautiful ball yard in Indianapolis was built in 1931 and named Perry Stadium; after several years and a change in ownership, the ballpark was renamed in 1942 Victory Field. By the late 1960s, the stadium once again was rededicated Bush Stadium and stood until the end of the 1996 season. Over the years, Bush Stadium was the stomping ground for the minor league Indianapolis Indians of the American Association and Pacific Coast League. Most significantly between 1937 and 1954, four different Negro League franchised called this stadium home. The Indianapolis Athletics (1937), ABCs (1938-39), Crawfords (1940) and the Clowns (1944, 1946-54). This incredible tribute to this wonderful stadium is in EX-MT condition, free standing and bright orange. The chair back bears the #2 and a plaque is affixed with a brief history of the value this stadium gave the game.
