League Park is a former baseball ground located in Toledo, Ohio, USA. The ground was home to the Toledo Blue Stockings baseball club of the then-major American Association from May 14, 1884 to September 23, 1884. The club also played minor league games here in 1883 and 1885.

The ballpark was located on a block bounded by Monroe Street (southwest), 15th Street (northwest), Jefferson Avenue (northeast), and 13th Street (southeast), a few blocks northwest of the site of the current Fifth Third Field.

This was the home field in 1884 for Moses Fleetwood Walker, the best-known of the black American major league ballplayers in the 19th Century prior to the color line being drawn.
