About the Edenton Steamers Baseball Team

About the Historic Hicks Field

Originally established in the year 1939, the Historic Hicks Field is a significant part of North Carolina history.  The dominant feature of this field is its main grandstand which can accommodate up to 500 fans; this wooden structure is one of the last remaining grandstands of its kind in the state.  This field played host to many minor league and semi-pro teams throughout the years and has even seen a few major league all-stars, such as Bob Feller.  Although the Historic Hicks Field had some major renovations in 1997, it still has that vintage and retro feel of an “old-timey” baseball field.
