NYC (Manhattan)

Dykman Oval
Formerly located at 10th Avenue and 204th Street in Manhattan, New York City.

The Oval was used for New York’s leading Negro baseball and semi-pro teams during the 1920s and 1930s. The park was home to the New York Cuban Stars, a  team owned by Alejandro Pompez.  He was instrumental with  the installation of lights for night games in 1930. Several years later the team’s name was changed to the New York Cubans.
