Description

The Victory Grounds in Batestown seems to have primarily been used for early baseball games, taking its name from the Victory Base Ball Club. Its location was described as near the Bull’s Head Tavern, which was at 862 River Street – the southeast corner of River Street and Glen Avenue. The Bull’s Head Tavern was also called the North Troy Hotel, or Weir’s Hotel after its proprietor John A. Weir (1809-1884). The Victory Grounds, or some portion of it, subsequently became the Laureate Grounds. (Lansingburgh Historical Society)
