Myers Field

From BR Bullpen

Myers Field was a ballpark located off Church Street in Norfolk, VA. It served as the home of the Norfolk Tars, a New York Yankees minor league affiliate, from 1940 to 1955. Originally known as High Rock Park, it was renamed Myers Fields in honor of local dentist Eddie Myers.

Notable major leaguers like Yogi Berra, Lew Burdette, Whitey Ford, Bob Grim, Mickey Owen, Bob Porterfield, Vic Raschi, Bobby Richardson, Spec Shea, Moose Skowron, Snuffy Stirnweiss and Gus Triandos all played for the Tars and therefore called Myers Field home.
