A field of broken dreams: Homestead may demolish its ill-fated sliver of MLB history

The Homestead baseball stadium has been a lot of things in its time— a practice field for striking major-leaguers, a clandestine clubhouse for kids, a place where petty criminals were booked and held before moving to county jail, but mostly, a bit of an embarrassing money-suck for the city. Now, Homestead is considering bids to demolish the aging structure, a move that could seal the fate of one man’s 30-year old dream that never came true.
