According to the New York Times, on October 16, 1974, the field was named after a long time Plainfield High School Athletics Director Herbert Alpheus “Hub” Stine who spent 37 years building one of the best High School athletics programs in the state.
Hub Stine had been closed since April 9, 2020, when the Superintendent of Schools cited Governor Murphy’s Executive Order #118 that ordered all parks in the state to be closed.
