Historic Horlick Athletic Field has been a central gathering place for the Racine community for nearly 100 years. On October 19, 2019, Historic Horlick Athletic Field will turn 100! The City of Racine and the Racine Raiders are putting together a year of celebrations to culminate on the 100th birthday on October 19, 2019.
Historic Horlick Athletic Field has been home to a National Football League team, an All-American Girls Professional Baseball League team, traveling Major League Baseball all-star teams, drum and bugle corps competitions, donkey baseball, midget car racing, high school athletics, adult amateur teams, and much more. While it’s impossible to figure out, Historic Horlick Athletic Field has likely hosted thousands of events and over a million spectators.
The planning is already underway. A logo was designed by Kris Martinez and this official logo will identify all official events for the 100th birthday of Historic Horlick Athletic Field. We hope you can make it to many of the events that we will plan to celebrate this cultural icon in our community.
