Ranger Exes Memorial-TX - Ranger schools Sport stadiums in Ranger

One of the first major sport stadiums in Ranger was Nitro Park which was built during the boom time of the 1920s. The baseball stadium had covered seating but the football field had no bleachers or sodded field. This was the home of the Rampagers football team. In 1925 a new stadium was built and named Lillard Field. Bulldog Stadium was built in 1935 with electric lighting. This stadium was used for many years and was the home of the 1953 State Champions. The stadium was upgraded in 1996 and named O.C. Warden Stadium after coach O.C. "Stubby" Warden who coached the 1953 team. Ellis Burks Field at Ranger College was built with the help of Ellis Burks (baseball player for the Indians). Nitro Park Nitro Park in the background during the 1920s
