Awaiting Review
Location Fort Wayne, IN, United States
Modern Address Camp Allen Park

Originally, the Fort Wayne ball grounds were at "Hamilton Field." Starting in 1869, the Kekionga played at the site of Civil War Camp Allen. A good SABR article on the Fort Wayne baseball grounds locates the 1869- grounds as being bordered by Elm, Mechanics, Fair, Camp Allen (modern name) and Cherry Sts., in a peninsula formed by an ox-bow of the St. Mary's River, west of downtown in a neighborhood known as "Nebraska." The modern-day Camp Allen Park borders these grounds on the southeast. The grounds are clearly visible on the 1871 map of Fort Wayne.

The first ML game was played there in 1871.
