-1949 Kinsmen Stadium



The Kinsmen Stadium opens in May 1949. The Stadium would host Wrestling
starting in 1954 after the Oshawa Arena, which was directly behind the baseball stadium
had burned down the day of the last wrestling card of 1953.

The stadium is still there, mostly un-changed from the early days
and retains the charm of the old style baseball fields. Can imagine it was a fine spot
for Wrestling on a hot summer night. The photos below were taken Aug 2011, and the clip
below from June 1 1945 was from the first card held at the stadium.
