Abandoned ballfields SE corner of 73rd and Kostner?

Does anyone know anything about the apparently abandoned ballfields at the southeast corner of 73rd Street and Kostner Avenue?
They are located just north of the Solo Cup factory, just east of the Tootsie Roll factory in the Ford City area. I came across them while looking at aerial photos of the Ford City area. On Historic Aerials they first appear in 1988, they are there in 1998, but by the 2002 photo they look abandoned. They are almost completely overgrown in the 2007 photo. The Bing bird's eye view shows the remnants of outfield and backstop fences, dugouts, and a small building on 73rd. There are three ballfields.
Just curious. Thanks.
