Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha, Nebraska. The former home of the College World Series. Reminds me of old Sick's Stadium in Seattle the way they kept adding seats. What a loss for Nebraska.

The Philadelphia stadium that would later be known as JFK Stadium in baseball configuration. Why baseball would be played there is a mystery because during that time, Shibe Park and possibly even the Baker Bowl still were in use.

April 15, 1958, and major league baseball has reached California and the Pacific coast. An overflow crowd of 23,448 have squeezed into tiny Seals Stadium, to witness the former New York Giants hosting the former Brooklyn Dodgers. Ruben Gomez of the Giants tossed a six-hitter, as the Giants draw first blood in the renewed rivalry, 8-0. Just beyond, you roadgeeks can see the brand new western terminus of Interstate 80, and further back the western part of the Bay Bridge leads to Yerba Buena Island. The Giants only played at Seals for two years, until Candlestick Park opened about three miles southeast. Ironically, 42 years later the Giants would move back to a spot on the right edge of the photo, out by the bay. Tweeted by Baseball by BSmile.

Sicks Stadium (originally Sick's Stadium, and later Sicks Seattle Stadium) was a minor league baseball park in the Mt. Baker section of central Seattle. It was built in 1938, on the site of the previous, wooden ballpark, which had burned down several years previously. It was the home of the AAA Seattle Rainiers/Angels, until the franchise was forced to move in 1969. The expansion Seattle Pilots played here for one season (in 1969) before going bankrupt, and moving to Milwaukee just before the 1970 season. The stadium was demolished in the late 1970s, and is now a hardware store.

This is a shot of the stadium in the mid-1960s, when the capacity was about 15,000. Picture from Wikipedia.



This shot is from the one season of the Pilots. Capacity was up over 25,000, with a large portion of the seats in right field. Picture from MLBcathedrals.

There are some informative pictures of Highbury (1913-2006) in this flickr album. One gets a real sense of the place without having been there.

This shot is of 12,000 seat Gilmore Field, used for minor league baseball, and 18,000 seat Gilmore Stadium, in the heart of Los Angeles. Both stadiums were built in the 1930s, and demolished during the building boom of the 1950s.

Rotherham UTD vs Gills 06 by Trevor Pipe, on Flickr

Don Valley Stadium in Sheffield, England. Opened in 1990. With a capacity of 25,000, it was Britain's largest athletics stadium, for over 20 years, until the London Olympic Stadium opened.

It served as a training base for the City of Sheffield Athletic Club (including World and Olympic heptathlon champion Jessica Ennis-Hill) and was the home of the Sheffield Half Marathon. From 2008 to 2012, Rotherham United FC played their home matches there. In its time, the stadium hosted rugby league, American football and floodlit cricket matches. It hosted rock concerts by numerous artists, including Michael Jackson, U2 and the Rolling Stones. Jan Železnı broke the world javelin record there in 1993.

The stadium was demolished in 2013, thanks to a lack of funding.

Clapton Stadium, Millfields Road in East London (1896 - 1974). Record attendance at the stadium for football was 37,615. The home ground of Clapton Orient but when they moved out it was used mainly for greyhound racing.

I always liked the story of Ewing Field in San Francisco. The owner of the San Francisco Seals got tired of sharing a small stadium with the Oakland baseball team at the time called recreation park. So in 1914 he put $100,000 into a new state of the art stadium that sat 17k.

Then when they actually started playing, they found out the fog rolled in at night and it made visibility very difficult and the weather got seriously cold. The joke was that the center fielder had to build a fire once to stay warm out there.

They used the stadium for a year and then went back to the smaller stadium. Amateur teams would use it from time to time, but it eventually caught fire in 1921 and was never rebuilt.
