History: The Hebrew Orphan Asylum was a philanthropic organization designed to care for Jewish orphans. The original building was on East 77th Street, but it was the ballfield at the later facility on Amsterdam Avenue and 136th Street that hosted occasional Negro league baseball games. The Asylum also featured their own baseball and basketball teams. In another curious baseball connection, the New York Yankees had originally planned to purchase the Asylum grounds to construct a new stadium in Manhattan, but ended up choosing the Bronx instead for Yankee Stadium when the land deal fell apart.
