November 6, 2021 (Savannah, Ga.) — Savannah’s Grayson Stadium is one of the lesser-known architectural gems of a city replete with them. On a recent trip there to run in a planned race (that was sidelined by a N’oreaster) I ventured to the grand old ballpark originally built in 1926. As impressive as the stadium was, the nearly half-mile-long promenade of Spanish moss marking its approach in the city’s Daffin Park was its equal.

Grayson is home to the Savannah Bananas of the Coastal Plain League (CPL), a wooden bat collegiate summer league, and in 2021 captured the CPL title in the sixth year of the franchise’s history.
