The Reading Red Sox are a defunct minor league baseball affiliate of the Boston Red Sox baseball franchise. The ball club was based in Reading, Pennsylvania, and played in the Class A New York–Pennsylvania League (1933–34) and its successor league, the Double-A Eastern League (1963–64). The Reading Red Sox played at the Lauer’s Park – now the site of a grade school, 251 N 2nd St, Reading, PA. Players like Babe Ruth and “Shoeless” Joe Jackson made their way through Lauer’s park. Now, Gordon Hoodak Stadium stands on those grounds. Constructed in 2006, the field is home to RBI League programs and other Baseballtown Charities endeavors.
