The Reds had played on this site since 1884 in what was called League Park. The field originally faced northwest. In 1894, the field was repositioned to face northeast and a new grandstand was built. The old grandstand was left intact and wrapped around the right field corner of the field. When League Park burned in 1900, the field was repositioned to make use of the old grandstand which had survived the fire. In 1902, when the new Palace of the Fans grandstand was completed, the field was repositioned yet again to face the northeast.
