About this event

Join us for a tour of Labatt Memorial Park, the world’s oldest baseball grounds, dating back to 1877.

This is a unique opportunity to learn more about the park, starting with the early days with the London Tecumseh and how it came to be known as Labatt Park. Hear stories from the golden age of baseball and the celebrated diversity, long before the colour barrier was broken in Major League Baseball. Learn about the London Majors, London Tigers, and all the other teams that have called Labatt Park home over the years.

Don’t forget to bring a ball and glove to play catch on the same field that baseball legends have played on including Ty Cobb, Fergie Jenkins, Deion Sanders and Jeff Bagwell.

The tour concludes inside the original 1937 Roy MacKay Clubhouse where you will see artifacts and displays from the mid 20th century.

There is something interesting for everyone to learn on this tour, not just fans of baseball. Guests will learn all about the role that this park has played not only in the City of London, but in the game of baseball as a whole.

Tours are offered at 10:00am, 11:30m, 1:00pm & 2:30pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays through July & August.

Tours must be booked at least 24 hours in advance. Walk-ups will not be accepted.

The tour is mostly outdoors, with the end of the tour inside the clubhouse. As per provincial regulations, masks must be worn at all times while enjoying the indoor portion of the tour.

Any additional questions/special requests can be sent to info@labattparktours.com
