Denton Field – Miles City MT

Description

A baseball stadium “built in 1940 by the WPA, Denton Field was built to the specifications of professional minor league baseball. Today, the ballpark is still up to code for the Pioneer League.

Today, the ballfield and grandstand, remains in pristine condition… Perhaps, even in better shape than the day it was built, (due to renovations including new elevated party decks down each line).

Denton Field, has been home to the American Legion’s Miles City Mavericks since it opened, and still hosts them today. However, Miles Field soon caught the attention of the rest of the American Legion, and became the tournament center, in 1940 for the Northwest Regionals.”

    I noticed that this item on your map
    Denton Field Miles City, MT.( in southeast Montana) Does not register on the search correctly.
    The address could be adjusted to South 3rd St, Miles City, MT 59301
