Nebraska City was one of the charter teams in the MINK league in 1910. Opening day in 1910 saw over 1,000 fans in the stands for their opening day. The park had added bleachers for their entry into the new league.
I am pretty sure the ball park was on 15th Street and Central Avenue. In 1911 a local business on 16th and Central installed "shower baths" for the team to use after practice and games.
If anyone has any pictures or other information on this park it would be appreciated.
The team also played some games at the Driving Park. The team played a game at the driving park on Sunday and after a complaint by a local minister they were all arrested for violating the Sabbath law.
The current baseball diamond in Nebraska City is located in Steinhart Park. As you can see from the photo above it has its own McCovey cove. The diamond is well maintained and although it has the typical new style bleachers it still maintains a unique character.
