Quick Facts:
The main field for the Wood-Ridge/Moonachie Little League is located right on the edge of the borough of Carlstadt. The third-base line is along Center Street, which serves as the borough line but exists only on paper at that point; the pavement dead-ends right at the field. Primary access to the field is on 6 Street in Wood-Ridge, which on the field side becomes Franklin Street in Carlstadt south of the field. It is also possible to walk up to the field on Carlstadt’s Washington Street.

The field is at one of the highest points in the borough of Wood-Ridge, and the lay of the land made it difficult to build the field any larger, as a hill drops off just beyond the left-field fence. Even with netting above the fence, many a home run has gone sailing into back yards of residents on 8 Street.

With the field nestled into a residental area as it is, local pressure has conspired to keep the local league from adding lights to its facility. As a result, many games start before 6 in the evening in order to afford a good opportunity to play all six innings. One of the most dramatic finishes in the field’s history came in 1985, when Marty Voelker of the Wood-Ridge 12-year-old tournament team doubled down the left-field line amid the gloaming, scoring the tying and winning runs in the district championship game against Garfield American as a storm approached from the west and blocked what was left of the day’s light.
