The stadium witnessed some notable achievements. For example, the old Savannah Indians (now the Gnats) became the first South Atlantic League to break the color barrier when Al (Izzy) Israel and Junior Reedy walked onto the field on opening day April 14, 1953, when the Savannah Indians played the Jacksonville Braves. Then a month later over 15,363 fans filled the stadium during Merchants Appreciation Night to break the all-time single-game crowd in Savannah history. In 2013 the Gnats won their first South Atlantic League Championship beating the Hagerstown Suns 3-1.
The stadium has also withstood a hurricane, gas explosion. and steel shortage during World War II. The stadium was rebuilt in 1940 after the hurricane to repair the bleachers that were destroyed. This renovation cost 150,000, however, half of that amount was provided by the federal government's Works Progress Administration. Another renovation in 1995 added a new sound system, press box, restrooms, and new clubhouses.
