Bing Crosby and Fields

Bing Crosby Stadium:
 MG 6227

With the help of a large donation from Bing Crosby, Warren County was able to build one of the nicest baseball stadiums in the Shenandoah Valley. Named after the early 1900's singer and actor, Bing Crosby Stadium serves as the home field for the baseball teams for Warren County High School, Skyline High School, Front Royal Little League, American Legion Giles B. Cook Post #53, Christendom College and the Front Royal Cardinals of the Valley League. Bing Crosby Stadium was renovated and reopened to patrons in 2006.
