92 Middle St, Weymouth, MA 02189, USA
Owned By: Town of Weymouth
Baseball complex with artificial turf and a paved walking trail. Also on site, and across the street, is the Weymouth Veterans Memorial Wall, which honors soldiers as far back as the French & Indian Wars.
Named for Dr. Herbert and Annie Libby. Herbert was a longtime member of the Weymouth School Committee in the 1900s and served as the town’s sports physician for more than 30 years. Annie served on various town committees and is remembered for her philanthropy.
This is primarily a baseball facility, featuring a regulation-size field, bleachers, a concession building, and warm-up/batting cages. Renovated in 2019, it is the home of the Weymouth High School Wildcats.
Along Middle Street at the outer edge of the field, and also across the road in front of the Abigail Adams School, stands the Weymouth Veterans Memorial Wall, an impressive brick structure with plaques listing Weymouth-based soldiers who lost their lives during numerous American conflicts, dating all the way back to the French & Indian Wars (1754-63). It was established in 1930 and refurbished in 2018.
This land is within the region of the Massachuseuk (or Massachusett) Native American tribe.
A flat, 0.25-mile paved/concrete/brick pathway extends around the perimeter of Libby Field.
