I was browsing the newspaper Jewish Herald-Voice dated April 24, 1941 and came across a sports field (for baseball and football) that was located "off South Main." The field was named Lobbuck Field. I figured this was HISD's Butler Stadium located at 13755 South Main Street.  The Butler Stadium wasn't built until the mid 1960s so I closed that thought.  I kept reading the articles about this sports field and I guess it's apart of Hermann Park?

All of the news clippings have different dates. Ranging from 1943 to 1949.

The old Settegast Field is also mentioned. I'm not too sure about that one. I haven't looked into it. Does anyone know what that's about? Where was it located and who is it named after?

Activities for Labor Day, with the matches to take place at Hermann Park. At 11 a.m. the softball tourney will take place at Lubbock Field. A box lunch will be held from 12 till 1:30 at Hermann Park. The softball finals and bowling finals will take pale that afternoon at their respective locations. The ping-pong tourney will be held at the T.M.C.A. From 4:30 until 6 that evening.
