These ballfields honor Julio Carballo (1950-1996), a community-minded Bronx resident who ran a neighborhood baseball program for youths during the 1970s and 1980s. Originally called Manida Ballfields, Commissioner Stern changed the name in 1997 at the request of Mr. Carballo’s widow, to honor her husband’s commitment to the neighborhood.
