Ballparks Past and Present

Twenty-First and Lehigh
It was known as Shibe Park until 1953, then as Connie Mack Stadium until it closed after the final game in 1970. You're at the corner of 21st and Lehigh, looking at the elegant main entrance. Memories
Philly Spring Cleanup
It's April 26, 1976, at The Vet in Philadelphia, and Mike Schmidt of the Phillies has just connected of Cincinnati's Fred Norman for his 11th home run of the month, tying the major league record for round trippers in April.
Kansas City Star
It's October 27, 2985, Game 7 of the World Series at Royals Stadium in Kansas City, and KC's George Brett has just connected for his fourth hit of the game, a 5th-inning single off St. Louis' Ricky Horton.
Polo Grounds Matinee
The unique dimensions of the long-gone Manhattan ballpark are captured from your upper deck vantage point, just to the right of home plate. Check out the Chesterfield sign on the center field clubhouse.
Texas Twilight Heat
It's August 4, 1993, at the Rangers' former ballpark, and a Nolan Ryan pitch is about to clip Robin Ventura, setting off a memorable melee. The amazing 46-year-old Ryan went on to notch the 322nd victory of his career.
Fenway Park Matinee
From your lofty perch behind home plate you have a fully panoramic view of the beloved Boston ballpark as batter Wae Biggs and the Red Sox tangle with the Yankees in a fantasy game based on 1991 references.

Coors First Pitch
It's Wednesday evening, April 26, 1995, and the Rockies righty Bill Swift has just uncorked the historic first official pitch at Coors Field in Denver. Colorado will win the game on Dante Bichette's 14th-inning homer!
Duke of Flatbush
It's September 22, 1957, at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, and Duke Snider has just connected of Philadelphia's Robin Roberts for his 40th HR, the 5th straight season he has hit at least 40 HR's, tying Ralph Kiner's NL record.
Yankee Stadium Ironman
