Amerige Park, named for the Amerige family that was responsible for subdividing and developing much of Fullerton, became notable when the Hollywood Stars trained here in the 1930s. Part of the film Alibi Ike was shot here.
The park is used today for community baseball; a PONY League tournament was under way when I visited in 2008. There have reportedly been discussions between the city of Fullerton and the Orange County Flyers of the Golden League to have the team move from the Cal State Fullerton campus to this facility two blocks from downtown. It would be necessary to improve parking and expand the stadium in order to make that possible.
The field at Amerige Park is dedicated to Duane Winters, who served in city government for 26 years.
