American League Park

American League Park was a baseball park that formerly stood in Washington, D.C., at the corner of Florida Avenue and Trinidad Avenue, NE. It hosted the Washington Senators from April 29, 1901 to September 27, 1902, when the team moved to National Park. That site had been the preferred site for the American League entry, but its usage had been blocked by the National League, which still had rights to the site despite no longer having a franchise in Washington. Once peace was reached between the leagues for 1903, the American League entry moved to that site and remained there for nearly 60 years.

American League Park was also the formal name of the ballpark in New York City that was popularly known as Hilltop Park.
