The Allstate Sugar Bowl is proud to offer financial support to Kirsch-Rooney Stadium on the campus of Delgado Community College. The stadium, dedicated in 1957 has become a baseball landmark for the region. The stadium hosts nearly 350 baseball games (college, high school, American Legion and AAABA) on an annual basis.
Now in its 62nd season (2018), the ballpark remains active year-round. For the past four decades, the Stadium has been home to Delgado Community College’s nationally-ranked baseball program. It also serves as the home of the majority of New Orleans’ top high school and prep baseball teams. During the summer months, Kirsch-Rooney is home to the New Orleans Boosters’ summer program and league as well as First District American Legion Baseball.
In 2003, Kirsch-Rooney Stadium’s diamond was named for long-time Delgado coach, Louis “Rags” Scheuermann, who served as supervisor of the stadium for forty years in addition to coaching the Dolphins. Since his death in 1997, the Scheuermann family has continued the family tradition of managing the facility. The family has been a constant throughout the stadium’s years, present since opening day in 1957.
