Newcomerstown, Ohio: Cy Young Hometown Monument

Elaborate, baseball-diamond monument lends credibility to Newcomerstown's claim as Cy Young's home town, even though he was born and buried elsewhere.

Cy Young Memorial Park

591 N. College St., Newcomerstown, OH
Cy Young Memorial Park. North of downtown. Exit US Hwy 36 onto County Rd 21, then quickly turn left into the park (look for the sign; if you reach houses you've driven too far). One you turn you'll see the monument straight ahead and to the left.

The Cy Young monument is right off the highway, next to a city pool. There's parking in front.

Local tradition says you need to run the bases for luck when visiting.

Cy Young Hometown Monument

It's a monument to the greatest and most winningest pitcher in major league baseball history. Located on the grounds of Cy Young park, at a baseball field that he dedicated. The monument is designed to resemble a baseball diamond, with Cy's memorial at the pitchers mound. Very cool tribute!

[Jordan the Lion, 10/30/2018]

The monument almost looks like an elaborate tombstone, but Cy is buried elsewhere -- in another town.
