LaGrave Field, Fort Worth
Categories: Fun & Games, Sports Complexes
LaGrave Field is a stadium in Fort Worth, Texas. It is primarily used for baseball, and was the home field of the Fort Worth Cats independent minor league baseball team. Its original version was the home of the predecessor Panthers/Cats team of the Texas League, during 1926–1958; the American Association in 1959; and then in Texas League again in 1964. It also served as the part-time home of the Dallas Rangers during 1960–1962. The ballpark was rebuilt during 2001, and opened in 2002 after the club played one season at Lon Goldstein Field.The ballpark sits on land bounded by a parking lot and then North Calhoun Street (southwest, first base); Northeast 6th Street (if extended) (southeast, right field); Northeast 7th Street (if extended) (northwest, third base); and the banks of a branch of the Trinity River (northeast, left field). The imaginary line running from home plate through second base runs roughly east-southeast.During the teams' inaugural 2014 season, LaGrave Field hosted home games for the Fort Worth Vaqueros FC of the National Premier Soccer League.HistoryLaGrave Field opened in 1926, replacing Panther Park, which had been opened in 1911 and was located on the "west side of North Main Street, a few blocks from" the eventual LaGrave Field. Panther Park, in turn, had replaced Hayne's Park, located "in the 'Prairie' area near downtown".Put LaGrave Field and other Fort Worth attractions into our Fort Worth vacation builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

My son played at LaGrave for summer select ball. It was very cool for him to play at a field where so many of the greats played! If you're a baseball fan, at least go by to say you've been there!
Agree with all the high ratings, but the baseball league (ULB) the Cats played in is defunct. No 2015 baseball here. Very sad. Fort Worth loved the Cats.
The Ft Worth cats have been around since the '20s. The park is modern and the price is great. ......................
LeGrave Field was awonderful place to go to a professional baseball game with the family. Affordable and close in. So sad Fort Worth no longer has a team to play at LeGrave.
I loved this place... I watch about 80 plus games of baseball a year in person (many different parks from Independent, to College, to Minor and Professional) and I always told people to come here for the most relaxing environment to see a baseball game... I wish I had lived closer to have season tickets. Since they did not play this season, I have just been thoroughly depressed I lost my favorite place to see a game....
The CATS baseball team was dissolved when the owner filed for bankruptcy. Lagrave has not hosted a game since 2014.
It was great to watch the Wild Cats play ball here.
