The Ghost Rules of Eagle Field, 1946-1954 » EPSON MFP image

Eagle Field served as the home of the sandlot club we called the Pecan Park Eagles in 1950, before organized ball opened up big enough to handle all of us Houston kids who wanted to play on “real teams.” The Eagles were real enough for me. My heart still soars with their blessed memory. – Eagle Field existed on a Houston city lot still operated today as a playground in the east end at the fork-corner of Japonica and Myrtle in Pecan Park near I-45 and Griggs. In 2012, the place now bears the name of Japonica Park – with no reference to the “Eagle Field” identity that we once gave it some 62 years ago.
