The reclamation of Hinchliffe Stadium, the former home of the New York Black Yankees, will be aided by a grant to study the condition of the facility and map out a renovation plan.
Now owned by the Paterson (N.J.) school district, the former home to Negro Leagues baseball and other sporting events, Hinchliffe Stadium has been targeted by preservationists who want to see the facility renovated.
The grant of $32,000, from the New Jersey Historic Trust, will be used to fund a renovation road map.
Hinchliffe Stadium is on the Ballpark Digest Endangered Ballparks list.
