SHIBE PARK Shibe Park was dedicated on April 12, 1909 when the Philadelphia athletics defeated the Boston Red Sox 8-1. At the time it was described by the press structure of steel and cement.” FENWAY SPORTS CARDS, 468 COMMONWEALTH AVE. BOSTON, MA. 02215 FORBES FIELD In 1909 President Barney Dreyfus moved his Pirates from Exposition Park, in a not very select area of Pittsburgh, to his newly erected grounds in the beautiful Schenley Park area. It was called Forbes after a General Jim Forbes who camped his Revolutionary War army in the District. FENWAY SPORTS CARDS, 468 COMMONWEALTH AVE. BOSTON, MA. 02215 BRIGGS STADIUM Briggs Stadium in Detroit has in recent years become the “dream” field of the majors. The layout, once paved with cobblestone over which a few inches of loam had been spread, has since gone through many facelifts. FENWAY SPORTS CARDS, 468 COMMONWEALTH AVE. BOSTON, MA, 02215 GRIFFITH STADIUM The All Star Game was played there in 1937 and featured Medwick's “four for four,” Gehrig's home run, and Averill's smash of Dizzy Dean's right toe – causing an injury which practically ruined the Cardinal ace as a top twirler. FENWAY SPORTS CARDS, 468 COMMONWEALTH AVE. BOSTON, MA. 02215 POLO GROUNDS The Polo Grounds, softest home run touch in the majors, was one of the real historic parks of our national game. Strangely enough, it was never a polo field and had acquired the name from the Giants' original park of the eighties which had been used for the mallet sport. FENWAY SPORTS CARDS, 468 COMMONWEALTH AVE. BOSTON, MA. 02215 WRIGLEY FIELD Wrigley Field, on Chicago's north side, is known as the Parlor Park of the major leagues... a beautiful field with ivy covered walls and artistically built stands. FENWAY SPORTS CARDS, 468 COMMONWEALTH AVE. BOSTON, MA. 02215 BRAVES FIELD With the famous Boston east wind blowing, the park was truly a pitcher's paradise. Center fielders such as Rabbit Powell and Eddie Brown had field days, and many sluggers suggested that the park be given back to the Indians. FENWAY SPORTS CARDS, 468 COMMONWEALTH AVE. BOSTON, MA. 02215 MUNICIPAL STADIUM Bill Veek's obsession in 1947 to play all the Cleveland home games at the huge Municipal Stadium meant that the historic league park passed forever from the big league picture. FENWAY SPORTS CARDS, 468 COMMONWEALTH AVE. BOSTON, MA. 02215 SPORTSMAN'S PARK Sportsman's Park is rich in baseball lore. On its site the first diamond was laid out in 1866. No field in the major leagues goes back so far in continuity of loca- tion. FENWAY SPORTS CARDS, 468 COMMONWEALTH AVE. BOSTON, MA. 02215 COMISKEY PARK Those fans who believe that major league playing fields should be uniform in size and shape found the answer in Comiskey Park. There, the playing field and the stands are symetrical in construction. FENWAY SPORTS CARDS, 468 COMMONWEALTH AVE. BOSTON, MA. 02215 YANKEE STADIUM Some had suggested that the park be named for the Colonel, but he rejected this idea and said, “Let it be named for the club and be a monument to all the Yankees.” Thus it became Yankee Stadium. FENWAY SPORTS CARDS, 468 COMMONWEALTH AVE. BOSTON, MA. 02215 CROSLEY FIELD This field is in the books as the first in which a major league game was played under the lights. The game, staged on May 24, 1935, was one of the many promotional masterpieces put on by Larry McPhail, the then general manager of the Reds. FENWAY SPORTS CARDS, 468 COMMONWEALTH AVE.
