    About

    Downs Field has been synonymous with baseball since the 1940s. The site was home to the Austin Black Senators, the first Negro League Baseball team in the city, beginning in 1927. Famous hometown hero and National Baseball Hall of Fame inductee, Willie Wells, began his baseball career with the Black Senators, and notable players such as Satchel Paige, Willie Mays, Smokey Joe Williams, and Buck O’Neil played baseball here. Downs Field is now home to the Huston-Tillotson Rams.
