 CLEVELAND (AP) - An important piece of Cleveland history will be celebrated Saturday with the reopening of historic League Park, once home to the Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Buckeyes of the Negro Leagues.
The city has spent $6.3 million to turn an empty, trash-strewn field into a handsome ballpark with a playing surface of all-weather field turf.
The ticket house will become the new home of Cleveland's Baseball Heritage Museum. The only other piece of the park that remains is a long brick wall. They are the last remnants of the ballpark where Cy Young threw the first pitch in 1891 for the National League's Cleveland Spiders, and where Babe Ruth hit his 500th home run.
League Park's restoration fulfills the dream of Fannie Lewis, a longtime Cleveland councilwoman who died in 2008.
