What Will Become of Bush Stadium in Indianapolis?

Bush Stadium stands as a remnant of what it once was. In the glory days of it’s youth, the stadium was revered as one of the finest ball fields in Minor League baseball. As former home to the Indianapolis Indians, and the Indianapolis Clowns Negro League team, Bush Stadium was most recently used as midget car race track.

Today, it has been vacant for eight years and is owned by Indy Parks. Although just a remnant, it still stands. Now, the question is what to do with the building which was once filled with baseball fans. For many, the building and grounds are an eyesore, while others want to see it remain.

The city is not prepared for the cost of rehabbing the building and it is unlikely the stadium will ever be used for sports again. The chances of it being demolished are slim, since the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

There has been much talk about what to do with the stadium in the last few months. Much of the speculation has the building remodeled and used in some fashion for life science facilities. The buildings location along White River at 16th Street makes for a quick trip to IUPUI and medical facilities like Wishard Memorial, Indiana University Medical Center and Riley Childrens Hospital.

Whatever it becomes, I hope the original building remains as part of the new plans. Bush Stadium Indianapolis Bush Stadium Indianapolis
