Canadian Baseball StadiumONTARIO, CANADA—Traces of a concrete grandstand dating to the 1950s have been uncovered at the site of an old baseball stadium in the city of Kitchener. The original grandstand was constructed of wood in the 1880s, when the first baseball diamond was built at Victoria Park. When the team was moved to a new stadium in the 1960s, the grandstand was torn down and buried.
