Hinchliffe Stadium Opens

June 1, 2023

Hinchliffe Stadium, one of the last surviving stadiums of segregated baseball’s Negro Leagues, opened this week for the first time since 1997 after the completion of a $103 million renovation project. The historic stadium in Paterson hosted Opening Day on Sunday for the Frontier League’s New Jersey Jackals, who will play home games at Hinchliffe Stadium this season after relocating from Montclair State University. Of Counsel Baye Adofo-Wilson also serves as CEO of BAW Development, where he developed the concept, studies, plans and financing for the stadium and oversaw the redevelopment of the entire Hinchliffe Stadium Neighborhood restoration and mixed-use project.
