Title supplied by cataloger. Jay Littleton Ballpark, formerly known as John Galvin and Ontario Ballpark, is located on the south side of the 10 Freeway at the corner of 4th and Grove in Ontario. This antique wooden stadium with covered grandstand was built in 1935 at a cost of $20,000 with a seating capacity of 2,500. The home teams have included the California Angels (Pacific Coast League - Spring Training) 1937-1942; Ontario Orioles (Sunset League) 1947; and Chaffey High School - present. Due to its 'old-time' stadium appearance, it has been used as a set for "The Babe", "A League of Their Own" and "The X-Files".
