1937: THE PHILLIES AND SENATORS COME TO DUNN FIELD TRENTON
Do you remember Dunn Field? It was over on the Brunswick Circle within the bounds of Princeton and Brunswick Avenues. I was an occasional visitor to Dunn Field during my Trenton Giant years. It was also the home field of the Trenton Senators back in the 1930's. Imagine how excited local Phillies fans were when the team came to Dunn field for an exhibition game!
I played many a game on the former Dunn Field lot. Penn Fruit, a large supermarket was nice enough to keep the field mowed and all of our pick up games were played there and that was almost daily during the summers of the late 1950's into the 1960's. It is currently the State Lottery and I think the grass is gone. Oddly, as kids this never came up and we never made the connection between the Dunnfield Auto Parts store across from it on Princeton Avenue. That patch of ground was also the home of Pix Hamburgers (5 for a $1) and Circle Lanes. Skip
