Field-In-A-Day
Rebuilding a baseball field at the Minidoka National Historic Site
Saturday, May 28, 2016

Baseball played a key role in sustaining the Japanese Americans who were incarcerated at the Minidoka War Relocation Center from 1942-45. Many camp residents—youth and adults, male and female—played baseball or softball on one of the many fields throughout the camp.

Field-In-A-Day is based on the 1952 Farm-In-A-Day event on property that was part of the historic Minidoka site. Approximately 1500 volunteers built a two bedroom home, dug irrigation canals, built corrals, and planted crops — all in a single day. On Saturday, May 28th, individuals and groups are invited to join Friends of Minidoka and park staff in rebuilding one of the baseball fields that were interspersed among the 44 residential blocks.

Volunteer for Field-In-A-Day, make a donation, share stories and photos, or learn more about the project by visiting www.nps.gov.
