I must have spent an hour or more trying to tie this field into the early years of Wetzel Field. My reasoning? The name Morris Field made it seem logical that Trenton's Morris Avenue was the location of the above field. WRONG! Further investigation reveals that a Mr. William Morris was an executive in the old Tri-State League. It turns out that Morris Field was probably named for him and was located in North Trenton on the site of Junior 5 near North Montgomery Street and Holland Avenue. Opening season of the "Tri-State League" included teams were from towns that were also a part of the old Interstate League.
