Ballplayers' House Refreshments

ballplayers cafe


Enjoy salads, sandwiches, burgers, and other ballpark snacks at this eatery on the northern edge of the Heckscher Ballfields. The small brick cafe is a quaint spot to get a bite while watching a baseball game or taking in the sweet calliope of the nearby Carousel. A beautiful flower bed surrounds the building, which is on the site of the original Boys' Ballplayer House, a changing room for boys who played "base-ball," and cricket on the 19th century ball field. Outdoor seating.
