I shot my photos of Engel Stadium in 1991 using film and in October of 2016 using digital.

I would like to thank Ben Hill and his Ben's biz blog for graciously letting me use his photos of Engel Stadium. You can read his blog here. http://bensbiz.mlblogs.com/tag/engel-stadium/ Ben's photos are the last 33 photos in the slideshow (without my watermark).

Engel Stadium - Opened in 1930 and still in use. But not in use for minor league baseball. The stadium is in need of a makeover. The main tenant for most of the Engel's life had been the Chattanooga Lookouts. They played in the Southern league from 1930 thru 1965 and again from 1976 thru 1999. The Chattanooga Choo Choo's of the old Negro Southern league played here from 1945 thru 1946. The stadium was also used in 2012 in the movie 42. There is a grass roots group called the "Engle Foundation" which is trying to raise money to help with much needed repairs to the park. You can find out more information here. http://www.engelfoundation.com/

The Lookouts moved out of Engel after the 1999 season. They have a new park, AT&T Field, just about 3 miles from Engel.

Engel has seen her fair share of hall of famers roaming the field. Just a short list of the hall of famers include Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Hank Aaron, Satchel Paige, Willie Mays, Harmon Killebrew, Ferguson Jenkins, Kiki Cuyler, and Rogers Hornsby. The stadium was renovated in 1988 but has fallen into disrepair since the Lookouts moved. If you ever get a chance, stop by and see a blast from the past, Engel Stadium in Chattanooga. You can almost see Hank Aaron roaming the outfield as a youngster.

Location - 1130 E. 3rd St. Chattanooga, Tennessee
