ONeill Nebraska Baseball entrance It is obvious that O'Neill has the full support of the town for baseball. The number of sponsor banners is amazing. The signs are everywhere but do not detract from the baseball experience.
The infield is what you would expect from a first class facility. Nice grass, well manicured and the outfield is similar in its quality. The press box is spacious and the place could hold a large crowd. The legion press box also has radio booths built into the facility. The field is home to the local American Legion team and to a local town semi-pro team. infield at O'Neill Nebraska

ONeill Nebraska Baseball entrance O'Neill is a town of about 4,000 people but it has all the amenities of a town twice its size. It has six parks, multiple baseball and softball diamonds and a number of retail stores. Nebraska's Irish Capital has a good mixture of new and well maintianed early 1900's buildings. While we were there the town was exceptionally clean.
