Welcome back to “30 Days of Irish Baseball“! Today, we take a look at O’Malley Fields in Dublin, Ireland. The fields – one adult field and one for Little Leaguers – were built in 1998 and financed by former Los Angeles Dodgers owner Peter O’Malley. The kickoff celebration for the fields was held on July 4, 1998 and the first pitch was thrown by US ambassador to Ireland, Jean Kennedy Smith.
