Clemens Field was constructed after the previous park was destroyed in 1935 and has recently been renovated. It is currently home to the Hannibal Cavemen baseball team. It has been a minor league park for several teams and has seen the St. Louis Cardinals play there in the past. During WW II, it was a German prisoner of war camp. Rock for the walls that surround the field were obtained locally from the same quarry as the adjacent Admiral Coontz Armory.
