Fraser Field is a baseball park in Lynn, Massachusetts that was built in 1940 by the Works Progress Administration as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal. Fraser Field has played host to many minor-league baseball teams over the years. The North Shore Navigators of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League call Fraser Field home. 2008 was the Navigators' inaugural season at Fraser, having moved from Holyoke, Massachusetts, and the organization won its first NECBL title since the move to Lynn in 2010.
The field is located next to the former Manning Bowl which was razed and replaced with the new Manning Field.
In 2003, investor Nicholas Lopardo began a project to revitalize the park. Lopardo's renovations included new scoreboards, seating, concessions, and clubhouses, along with a remodeled roof covering a section of the park's grandstand. The project cost roughly 2.5 million dollars.
In 2006 and 2007, the opening round of the Baseball Beanpot - a college baseball tournament featuring Boston College, Northeastern University, The University of Massachusetts, and Harvard University, were played at Fraser Field.
