Take a step back in time to an era when river traffic slowed and everybody's wallets and bank accounts got smaller and smaller: The Great Depression. Thanks to the WPA this simple beauty, the formerly named Riverview Stadium, got built in the midst of all that hardship and they've been playing professional baseball here ever since then. This is the mood that the flashier, richer, new breed of minor league team are trying to replicate and package. They never get it right, but they are making a profit. For now. And for now, come to Clinton and enjoy the real thing.
