Base Ball Park (top); Hornets 1909
Charlotteans were thrilled by the permanent baseball park built in 1892 in Latta Park by the company that developed Dilworth. It had grandstand seating for 2,500 spectators. Charlotte's professional club vied for the pennant in the South Atlantic League. Charlotte's colored baseball club played teams from Athens and Atlanta, Georgia. In 1892, admission to the ball ground in Latta Park was a quarter for men and fifteen cents for ladies and children. In 1902, Charlotte's baseball team became a member of the Carolina League, but it folded before the close of the season. Eddie Ashenback was manager. One newspaper described a 1905 game between the Charlotte "immovables" and the Davidson "irrestibles," saying " Dr. Alexander, manager for Charlotte, deserved particular mention for scattering lime along the tracks. He did this beautifully." The baseball park pictured here was in use around 1908.
Another baseball team to come to Charlotte, in 1908, were the Hornets, managed by Lave Cross. A year later the Hornets were pictured on this postcard. C.F. Humphrey (top, second from right) was their leading hitter. Within three years the Hornets were playing in a new park, Wearn field and grandstand, which was built on Mint Street in 1911-12 and designed by Louis Asbury Sr. It replaced the Latta baseball park when its ten-year lease expired. Park Road got its name from the Latta Park sports field. The Hornets shared Wearn Field with at least one northern team during a preseason, when the Brooklyn Dodgers held their spring training in Charlotte.
