EVERY Ballpark Used by a Major League Baseball Team

Yankee Stadium, The Polo Grounds, Griffith Stadium, Wrigley Field, and countless other homes for Major League franchises often stir up indelible memories.

Imagine yourself playing at Ebbets Field with the legendary Abe Stark Sign along the outfield wall - hit it, and you would have won a free suit! You would also know this is where the first televised game was played, and where Jackie Robinson played his first Major League game. The eye, it is known, records everything it sees.

But then, there is the most mysterious of all the 5 senses, the sense of smell. How often have you entered a ballpark to be greeted by the invigorating fragrance of hotdogs, mustard, and relish, and have been returned instantaneously to joyous memories of your youth? Or all of a sudden, a certain perfume in the breeze makes you turn around to see if that special someone you once knew was sitting nearby.

It seems that only ballparks are conducive to such limitless memories, somehow combining the wide open heavens with the solid earth, green and fertile. Although new stadiums are being built almost yearly to maximize team profits, while older stadiums are becoming relics of the past, we must bear in mind that the new stadiums of today will most likely become treasure troves of memories for generations to come. Finally, all memories will be intricately connected to what transpires on the field of action and in which 'theatre' of drama the events occurred.

Baseball Almanac is pleased to present the information you need to contact any current ballpark AND walk through and breathe in the essence of some of the green fields of yesteryear.

"I don't know (if they were male or female fans running naked in the ballpark during a game). They had bags over their heads." - Yogi Berra in The New York Daily News (Daniel O'Leary, Yogi Berra's most famous quotes: The wit and wisdom of the late Yankees legend , November 23, 2015)

During the 1862 season, William Cammeyer enclosed the Union Grounds in Brooklyn, New York and began charging admission becoming the first "official" stadium in baseball history. The fee was 10¢ and the first game featured with a cover charge was played on April 18, 1869 between local players.

There Used To Be A Ballpark
(Written by Joe Raposo / Recorded by Frank Sinatra)

"Oh, there used to be a ball park
where the field was warm and green,
and the people played a crazy game
with a joy I've never seen.

How the people watched with wonder,
how they laughed and how they cheered
Yes, there used to be a ball park....
right here....

And the people ate rock candy
on a great big 4th of July
and the fireworks exploded
all across the summer sky.

And the air was filled with wonder
from the hot dogs and the beer
Yes, there used to be a ball park...
right here....

Now the children try to find it,
and they can't believe their eyes
For the old team isn't playing,
and the new team hardly tries

And the sky has gotten cloudy
when it used to be so clear
and the summer....went so quickly...
this year....

Yes, there used to be a ball park...
right here....

On April 12, 1909, Shibe Park opened and became the first all concrete and steel constructed baseball ballpark in the world. Too easy? Behind the large / beautiful French Renaissance dome stood the office of Connie Mack .

Did you know that during Yankee Stadium's first game ever, Babe Ruth hit the first home run in the ballpark which was commonly referred to as "The House That Ruth Built?"
