Renovated Bush Stadium

Construction on the conversion of Bush Stadium, the former home of the Indianapolis Indians (Class AAA; International League), continues, with the old ballpark transitioning to an apartment complex.

The $13-million project will convert the old grandstand to apartments, with office space built in the old outfield area. The infield, light stanchions, the press box and an old scoreboard are set to remain intact. The apartments should be ready in August 2013.

Here's the full report from WISH-TV:

Bush Stadium is back in the game

Bush Stadium was the home of the Indianapolis Indians through 1996, when the team moved to downtown's Victory Field. It opened in 1931 as Perry Stadium and was renamed Victory Field in 1942 to honor the American war effort. It was later renamed Bush Stadium in 1967 for Indianapolis native and MLB player Donnie Bush. The old Indianapolis Clowns of the Negro Leagues also played there.
