Ramsline Halt, previously Baseball Ground Halt, was a single-platform railway station that opened by BR in 1990 to serve the Baseball Ground, the former home of Derby County football club in England. It is situated in Pear Tree, Derby. The station cost £26,000 to build, funded by the Football Trust, but only four trains ever stopped there. In 1997 Derby County moved to the new Pride Park Stadium and Ramsline Halt closed. In spite of this, it remains in reasonable condition. There is no current access to it, but it can be seen from Osmaston Road. The station name board is now at the National Football Museum.
The only trains using Ramsline Halt were Football Specials for away fans to prevent crowd trouble in Derby City Centre and at the main Derby railway station, for example a visiting team from Birmingham City F.C. would leave Bordesley railway station and run non-stop to Ramsline Halt.
