The baseball diamond at 12th and Belmont got lots of use in the 1910's, at least according to the images in Arline Moore's album. Here we see Merle Gessling at bat.
Records indicate there was a Heights team as well as a downtown team, and they occasionally played teams from the Dalles. This match took place in 1912.

It'd be interesting to find out if this field sat where the current little league fields are today. gotta be pretty close.

RHD, the 1916 Sanborn map shows the ball field at the SW corner of 12th and Union (Belmont). You can see the fence in the link below. I think it's basically where the armory is today.
