The New Jersey Jackals, a Canadian-American Independent league, play at Yogi Berra Stadium in Little Falls, NJ. The stadium opened in 1998 and seats 3,784. The Jackals were playing the Worcester Tornadoes and won 5-1. The box score was Tornadoes R-1, H-4, E-4 and Jackals R-5, H-7, E-1. The field lines are RF & LF-308' and CF-398'. The stadium was built in a quarry on the Montclair University property. The quarry was partially filled, but you can see remains of it down the first baseline in the visiting teams bullpen area. The university uses the facility for its baseball team. It was a cool day, cloudy with the sun breaking through the clouds at times. Lots of families in attendance with many youth birthday parties being celebrated in the Birthday Party Tent. Jack is the mascot. A between inning activity is Jack vs the baby crawl on a mattress. This baby was more interested in Jack's antics than the race. She finally completed the race after much urging. A regular fan is Scott Freier, the Trumpet Guy. He plays his painted trumpet for Jackals' positive plays and opposing teams' negative plays. He has set tunes for each situation. He autographed two of his playing cards for Jim. The building behind the first base seating is the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center.
Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center at Montclair State University. Overlooking the baseball stadium of the New Jersey Jackals, this museum traces the history of baseball and commemorates Yogi Berra's legendary career. A great little museum. Fee.
