WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — This Throwback Thursday we’re taking a trip to the ball field. Legion Stadium here in Wilmington was originally build back in the 1930’s.
The public recreation field has played home to a number of sporting games and community events through the years. Everything from the Azalea Festival to high school graduation has been celebrated there.
Today the stadium is home to the Wilmington Hammerheads and is part of the Legion Sports Complex. The stadium seats 6,000 people.
