Lynn’s Fraser Field was built in 1940 by the Works Progress Administration as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. The 73-year old field has a long and colorful history including hosting the 1940’s Lynn Red Sox, the farm club of owner Tom Yawkey’s Boston Red Sox. Other former tenants of the grand old park include the Lynn Tigers, Lynn Sailors, Lynn Pirates, Massachusetts Mad Dogs and North Shore Spirit. Currently Fraser Field is home of the North Shore Navigators of the New England Futures League, which is a college level wood bat league (similar to the Cape Cod League.) The Navigators began play in 2008 and captured the championship of the New England College Baseball League in 2010. Fraser Field is also home to the five Lynn High School Varsity Baseball teams: Lynn Classical, Lynn English, Lynn Vocational Technical Institute, St. Mary’s and KIPP Academy. Fraser Field is located next to the former Manning Bowl, which was razed and replaced with the new Manning Field in 2008.
