Not much left of Tiger Stadium but a flagpole and our memories.

Posted on June 20, 2010 at 1:00pm 6 Comments

I’ve stood on the field in Tiger Stadium a number of times. Several times were for stories, once was a pre-game clinic with my son and another time was to watch Kiss launch its reunion tour.



And Will and I were last at the corner of Michigan and Trumbull for the stadium’s final game in 1999.

But Saturday afternoon we stood on the field where Ty Cobb and Al Kaline played, and Trammell and Whitaker turned double plays. Gone were the fans… Continue

Adventures in the Astrodome -- a sneak peek into the fabled yard

Posted on October 12, 2009 at 10:00am 5 Comments

The Eighth Wonder of the World still stands, though it has seen better days.



The Astros moved downtown and the Texans football team have massive Reliant Stadium, which towers over the first-ever domed stadium.



There’s a lot of Mets history in that dome, including what one author called “The Greatest Game Ever Played,” Game 6 of the 1986 National League playoffs.



So I figured I’d head over and just walk around the outside, taking some photos. The Texans wanted $8… Continue

Separate and not quite equal at U.S. Cellular Field

Posted on August 30, 2009 at 6:12pm 1 Comment

Here’s a sentence I never thought I’d type. The White Sox should take customer relations lessons from the Mets.



The Baseball Truth gang made U.S. Cellular Park the spot for our Executive Game 9 last weekend, watching the Sox beat the Orioles 4-1.



Will shows off the tickets as we head out to the game. Fans of the televison show "Leverage" will recognize Laurie, who had a big scene in the pilot and was praised mightily by the producers in the DVD commentary.

Dodger Stadium, 2003 -- You can drive right to the upper deck!

Posted on May 2, 2009 at 9:30pm 0 Comments

I arrived into L.A. on a Thursday night in early April, and didn’t have to be at the conference until Friday afternoon, so I had a little time to explore. Naturally, I made Dodger Stadium a priority.



Finding the ballpark was a little tricky because I couldn’t see it from the street. I was driving around the Chavez Ravine neighborhood and found the sign directing me into a wide area with what looked like toll booths.



The Dodgers started the season on the road, so I didn’t… Continue

Old Busch Stadium's Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum -- a nice place to bowl

Posted on April 19, 2009 at 3:19pm 5 Comments

The Cardinals had a wonderful Hall of Fame in the lower levels of the old Busch Stadium. It later moved it across the street into the National Bowling Hall of Fame.



I suspect this was because the bowling hall lacked visitors. In fact, the bowling hall packed up and headed to Texas in November. A new Cards museum is expected to be a part of a new development across from the new stadium, should the retail-office-residential complex get built.



But all was good back in 1993… Continue

Only a few more to go for you Dave. Someone should post a blog with all the ballparks original/name changes for each current stadium.
