I saw games in the Vet, 3 Rivers, River Front and St Louis in the 70,s 80,s, except for the arches in S.L. they where almost indistinguishable. Multi-purpose, they where better for football than baseball, the Vet carpet was the worst, took 3 years off Mike Schmidt,s career.
Also saw games in the old Yankee stadium and Shibe Park in Philly, now those where parks.
There was something about the smell of the old parks, beer, peanuts, cigars "old", they smelled old, it was great ! They also had "bad seats", you could get stuck behind beams, have have half the field cut off. Never forget the Longines Clock at the top of the Scoreboard in Shibe or better known locally as Connie Mack Stadium. (Also there where rooftop seats, people who lived on the street off right field could sit on thier roofs and clearly see the game, cheap seats, they would also sell them for big games)
