     In 1921, the Terry family donated 25 acres of cow pasture to Lee County.   A small wooden grandstand seating 600 was erected on this site.  The Philadelphia Athletics baseball team used this site for their spring training from 1925 to 1936.  It was used by the Cleveland Indians from 1941 to 1942.  In 1926, it was the home of the minor league team the Fort Myers Palms.
     The stadium remained in 1925 condition until 1943.  At that time, it was destroyed in a fire.     The stadium was rebuilt in 1955.  It was constructed in steel and cement. The rebuilt stadium was the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates for 14 years.  Next it was used by the Kansas City Royals until 1987.  The minor league team Fort Myers Royals used the stadium from 1978 to 1987.  The park remained in its 1955 condition.
     In 1995, it was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
     The park was rededicated and renamed Park T. Pigott Park.
     In 2003, the Park was used by the baseball team of Florida Gulf Coast University.
     In 20004, the stadium was damaged by Hurricane Charley.  The city replaced the grandstand structure with a smaller 700 seat capacity.
     Currently, 160 college baseball teams use Terry Park in the month of March to begin the baseball season.   The park is now a multivitamin facility.
