History and description

The team, which was called the Middlesex County Club, played its first ever game against the Royal Navy on this ground. In 1895 Derby County reached a deal with Ley to become the permanent tenant of the ground. Ley in turn invested £7,000 to increase capacity from 4,000 to 20,000 places.

Derby played its first match at the ground on September 14th, 1895. Approximately 10,000 spectators saw the team beat Sunderland 2-0.

Derby made plans to move again, but instead decided to buy the freehold on the stadium from Francis Ley and become the owner of the Baseball Ground.

Derby promoted to the First Division in 1926 and began work on a new main stand designed by Archibald Leitch. After the stand was completed, attention turned to the Popular Side where the terrace got enlarged and fitted with cover.

The crowds at Derby continued to grow, and in 1933 a new double-decker stand was built at the Osmaston End. Two years later, a similar stand was built at the opposite end, thereby increasing capacity to a total of 38,000.

In 1969, the Popular Side was promoted to the First Division. This was thanks to extensive redevelopment and renaming of the Ley Stand in honor of Sir Francis Ley.

The redevelopment of the Baseball Ground increased its capacity to just over 40,000 people. Soon after, in 1969, it recorded its highest attendance when 41,826 people visited a home match against Tottenham Hotspur.

Major changes were made to Derby County's stadium in the 1970s due to mounting financial and sporting problems. These changes only consisted of measures to keep hooligans from congregating near the stadium.

In the early 1990s, the Baseball Ground got converted into an all-seater following the publication of the Taylor Report. This resulted in its capacity decreasing to 18,300 seats.

The ground was not well-suited for being an all-seater, which led to many discomforts. Plans were thus made to rebuild three of the four stands only leaving the Ley Stand intact.

Although this scenario meant that the club could remain at its cherished home, it would still rob the Baseball Ground of most of its character and it would not offer a solution for the access difficulties.

The club announced in February 1996 that it had acquired land to build a new stadium. Construction of Pride Park Stadium commenced later that year and was completed in the summer of 1997.

Derby played its last baseball game at the Baseball Ground on the 11th of May 1997. The home side lost the match 1-3 from Arsenal.

The ground was used for reserve matches for a few seasons, but then it was sold to property developers. It finally got demolished in 2003 and replaced by residential housing. In 2010 a commemorative statue of three football players was revealed at the place where once stood the Baseball Ground.

We used to love comparing the immaculate pitch in the programme with the quagmire that was our twelfth man. Football heaven, except for the men's? loo!

It was for mine (Sheffield United) that in 8 visits from 1969 to 1975 (6 league, 1 FA Cup and 1 Watney Cup), we lost them all, three by 3 goals. I doubt whether Pride Park, or whatever they call it now, can generate the same atmosphere!
