Hilldale Park

Situated in Yeadon, Pennsylvania, Hilldale Park served as home for various Negro League teams from 1910 to 1932.  Some of the greatest players in the history of black baseball, including John Henry Pop Lloyd and Oscar Charleston, called Hilldale Park home during that period.  Lloyd, the finest shortstop ever to play in the Negro Leagues, drew comparisons to the great Honus Wagner during his playing days, while some Negro League historians consider Charleston to be the greatest all-around player they ever saw.
