Isabel's field was originally dedicated to Alex Isabel, Amsterdam Native & former City Recreation Commissioner as well as a scout for the Brooklyn Dodgers Baseball Team.
As time went on, the field because run-down, so Alex Isabel's nephew, Joseph Isabel (current 1st Ward Alderman & Amsterdam Recreation Committee Chairperson) renovated the field. He put up a new fence, dugout, grass & an infield and re-dedicated it to his parents, Guy & Ida Isabel.
He later added lights & a scoreboard. Joe's parents sponsored "Isabel's Wee Mens baseball Team" beginning in 1960. The officers of the Amsterdam youth Baseball Organization have since added a concession stand & additional baseball diamond, parking, playground area and a batting cage.
Isabel's Park is the current home of the Amsterdam Youth baseball League serving children ages 5-12.
