Patterson, New Jersey.
Hinchliffe Stadium was a venue used to host Negro League and ‘barnstorming’ games. It started hosting baseball in 1933 when it held the Coloured Championship of the Nation. In 1934 the New York Black Yankees played at Hinchliffe. They played there until 1945 (1938 they moved to Triborough Stadium for one season). The New York Cubans also played at Hinchliffe in 1935 and 1936.
Graffitied, unused, and tilting to one side, the scoreboard of Hinchliffe has braved the passing of time and still resiliently stands in place. Hinchliffe is part of a major renovation project in New Jersey which hopes to reconstruct it to its former glory to be used for both football and baseball. Like the Negro Leagues themselves the legacies of the players, teams and spectators who came here will be preserved and Hinchliffe will be a place for the stars of tomorrow to make their mark.
