Baseball History

Labatt Memorial Park (formerly Tecumseh Park, 1877–1936) is a baseball stadium near the forks of the Thames River in central London, Ontario, Canada. Labatt Park is the "oldest continually operating baseball grounds in the world", with a history dating back to 1877. Since December 31, 1936, the park has been owned by the City of London. However, Fuller Field in Clinton, Massachusetts, made it into the Guinness Book of World Records in September 2007 as the "world’s oldest continuously used baseball diamond", dating back to 1878, a year after Tecumseh Park. As Fuller Field's home plate and bases have purportedly remained in the same location since 1878, whereas home plate at Labatt Park has been moved (within the same field) from its original location in 1877.
