An auto salvage company is paying the city $2,000 per month to use the outfield of Bush Stadium to store vehicles collected under the Cash for Clunkers program. It probably wasn't the use the city expected in 2007 when it ordered appraisals of the historic ballpark as a first step toward eventual reuse or demolition. The Indianapolis Indians played in the West 16th Street stadium until 1996, when they moved to Victory Field. After that, the ballpark briefly served as home to a midget-car racetrack. The 78-year-old stadium now is owned by the parks department. More is here.
