Mayo Field

This serves as the seventh post in my fourth season of a series called “Down on the Farm” that chronicles visits to various baseball parks throughout the 2014 campaign. (All prior editions can be accessed here.)

A recent visit to southeast Minnesota wrapped up six days and 3,000 miles on the road during a pleasantly mild late July.

Mayo Field is the fourth and likely final Northwoods League I’ll visit and review this summer, marking six total going back to 2013.

Erected on land given to the city of Rochester by the Mayo Brothers, the small but functional stadium sits along the diminutive Zumbro River on the edge of downtown Rochester. The NWL’s headquarters are also located here.
