Lamar Porter Athletic Field

From FranaWiki

The Lamar Porter Athletic Field at the corner of Seventh and Johnson streets in Little Rock, Arkansas, was constructed between 1934 and 1936 for the Little Rock Boys Club. Construction was undertaken by the Works Progress Administration on a recreational site indicated by urban planner John Nolen. The field is named for Lamar Porter, who grew up in Little Rock before his death in a car accident while attending Virginia's Washington and Lee University.

The field, located in the Stifft's Station neighborhood, is on the National Register of Historic Places. Hall of Fame third baseman Brooks Robinson played here as a young person.
