Sports in Perth Amboy

Sports, high school or city leagues
have been a popular past time in Perth Amboy. 
No matter what the sport was, the crowds were always
there cheering the team on, win or lose.
Perth Amboy had two stadiums.  Water Stadium was on the
north side of town. McWilliam on the south side.
Only Water Stadium is still standing.
