Movie night slated at Parkhurst Field

GLOVERSVILLE — The Gloversville Recreation Commission will host a showing of Universal Studios blockbuster movie ‘Field of Dreams’ on Saturday at Parkhurst Field on Harrison Street in Gloversville.

The site was chosen because one of the main characters in the movie (Moonlight Doc Graham) actually played at Parkhurst Field (then known as A., J. & G Park) as a member of the New York State League’s Scranton Miners in 1906 and 1907. It is believed to be the last remaining baseball field in the country that Graham actually played on.

Admission is free (bring your own chair or blanket) and the concession stand will be open with snacks and glow sticks available for purchase. The movie will begin at dusk (8:30 p.m.) and the Parkhurst Field Museum will be open beginning at 7 p.m. for anyone wanting to check out the field’s connection to the movie and its general history from 1906 to present.

Also on hand will be the Gloversville Police Department and Fire Department doing meet and greets with the community from 7 to 8 p.m.
