Whitey Ford was an Astoria native who, after signing with the Yankees in 1947, became a Cy Young Award winner, a six-time World Series champion, and one of the greatest pitchers in Yankee history. In August 2000, this field overlooking the East River was named after the "Chairman of the Board" at a special Yankee Stadium ceremony.

This grass ballfield is used by Little Leagues and many other organizations, and the park also contains a small workout area to get ready for the game, as well as a seating area to take in the spectacular view.
