    Back in 1988 I visited a place called Boardwalk and Baseball. I think it was ok but I don't really remember much about it so obviously wasn't that memorable!

    Does anyone know anything about it? I understand it's no longer going but does anyone know when it closed? Did anyone else visit it? Also can anyone (Tink maybe) give me an idea of where in relation to everything else was it?

    Not sure what you are talking about? There used to be a baseball pitching game on the boardwalk. It's been gone for some time. It was on the actual boarwalk along the railing by the water. :unsure:

    That is an interesting read. It wasn't there very long at all. :)

    Believe it or not I actually remember this. I don't think I ever actually made a visit to it but I remember driving past it while it was in operation.

    Oh my gosh! We used to go there every year growing up! What nice memeories I have from Circus World and BW&BB. My grandparents live near Tampa so this was always close for us.

    I've seen an image on Google Maps of where it used to be. Very empty when the image was taken. I wonder if there's anything there now?
