Knoxville Names Park

I'm starting to do a bit of research into the ballparks of Knoxville.  Here's a start.  

Smithson stadium, named after Knoxville Councilman W. N. Smithson, burned down in the early 1950s.  It was replaced by Knoxville Municipal Stadium in 1953.  In 1957 it was renamed Bill Meyer Stadium in honor of the former player and manager, William Adam Meyer.
