George Field

George Field is located at 1801 North 5t Street. I cannot find an exact date for when this stadium was built, but the front gates say, “Class of 1914”. One can assume it was around then. For football games It was replaced by the newer stadium right behind the school forĀ  in 1938. Though it is still used for baseball games, from little league to Reading High Games. Anyone have more information on the history of George Field?
