  • Forepaugh Park was a baseball ground located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at Broad and Dauphin Streets in North Philadelphia. It had an estimated capacity of 5,000. The ground was home to the Philadelphia Quakers of the Players' League in 1890 and the American Association in 1891. It was also used for various types of exhibitions until the end of 1893. Contemporary maps locate the ballpark on the block bounded by North Broad Street (west, third base); Dauphin Street (south, first base); North 13th Street (east, right field); and York Street (north, left field); and with the north-south streets Pembroke (now Watts) Street and Park Avenue penciled in to cut through the ballpark, which they were in 1894 after the block was sold to developers. The ballpark was two blocks south and across Broad Street from where Baker Bowl had opened in 1887. The location, also sometimes called "Forepaugh's Park" or "4-Paw" in local newspaper advertising, was named for Adam Forepaugh, the owner of the Forepaugh Circus who had died in January of 1890. The circus' previous site had been the site occupied by the Union Association club, Keystone Park. During the 1890 season, the ballpark was concurrently dubbed "Brotherhood Park", a common practice for the ballfields used by the Players' League clubs.
