Elmer Valo Field

The Elmer Valo Field is a little league field located past the Borough Garage on South 3rd Street. The ball field has dugouts and a concession stand operated by the Palmerton/Towamensing Little League. The field is used by the 7-10 year old league. There is also a regulation size basketball court available for open use. The field is available during day light hours year round. Formerly known as the 3rd Street Field, in 2016 Palmerton Borough Council renamed the field as the Elmer Valo Field in honor of Elmer’s long, storied professional baseball career. Born in 1927 in Rybnik, Czechoslovakia, Elmer was raised just feet from this present field. Beginning in 1940, he spent 20 years as a professional player followed by another 40 years of scouting and coaching; but always returning to live in Palmerton. Palmerton is proud to be “home base” to Elmer
