Photographed in September of 2016 using digital.

TCU diamond - Opened in 1962, closed in 2002 and demolished in 2003. The ballpark sat 1500 fans and was pretty much bare bones. After the diamond was demolished, the foul poles were moved to the new Lupton Stadium which opened in 2003.

Location - The old diamond was located in between Amon G. Carter stadium and the Daniel - Meyer Coliseum. The land where the TCU Diamond sat is now the location of the Sammy Baugh Indoor Practice Facility, Morris Practice Fields and the Bob Lilly Physical Performance Center.

This is from 1988. Just to the right of Meyer Coliseum is the TCU Diamond. The only photo I shot of it, albeit by accident.

Looking at what would have been the third base side of the old TCU Diamond.
