Texas’ Forgotten Past – Katy Park in Waco

Katy Park

In the middle of downtown Waco near the very popular Magnolia Market at the Silos is the site of Waco’s forgotten minor league baseball stadium – Katy Park.  The stadium was razed in 1965 and is now a parking lot for MM. Before that, however, it was a major feature in the Waco landscape and hosted a number of teams including the Waco Pirates, a farm team for the Pittsburgh Pirates and a semi-pro team the Waco Missions.  A number of MLB Hall of Famers including Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig played at KP.   For more on the story of this historic site, check out the Waco Tribune.
