Grayson Stadium

Grayson Stadium, built in Savannah, Ga., in 1926, is another smaller ballpark where it is possible to come face-to-face with baseball history.  Able to hold 4,000 people, Grayson is currently home to the New York Mets-affiliated Savannah Sand Gnats, and it is also used by the University of Savannah baseball team.  The stadium was named in 1941 after a hero of the Spanish American War, Gen. William Grayson, who led fund-driving efforts to repair what was then known as Municipal Stadium following a damaging hurricane.  The park is set in Savannah's historic district, and its brick facade fits in seamlessly with the surrounding classic buildings.
