    How about the roof at Olympic Stadium? I believe if you hit some part of it or another you were awarded a ground-rule double.
    Actually, Guerrero hit the roof in the Olympic Stadium and the umpires took alot of time on this one. But it was ruled a home run in the end. So, when you hit the roof, it's a home run....

      What ballpark featured the first organ?
      Answer: Wrigley Field, 1941.

      --------------------------------------

      1. Connie Mack Stadium in 1970 was the last ML ballpark to have major advertising on its outfield walls until this ballpark opened up.

      2. These 2 ballparks (opened in the same year) were the first to be constructed of steel and concrete.

      3. This ballpark holds the distinction of being the only stadium to have had 2 pro football teams and 2 pro baseball team as tenants in the same year.

      4. this ballpark hosted a record-setting 455 consecutive sold-out games.

        Is it the Kezar Stadium??? The tenants were the 49ers, the Raiders, the Giants and I just can't seem to find out the last one....

          4. Fenway Park?
          A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation. I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel. I played it right because that's what you're supposed to do, play it right and with respect. If this validates anything, it's that learning how to bunt and hit and run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light at the dug out camera. - Ryne Sandberg

                  1. This ballpark was host to the NFLs infamous "Heidi" game.

                  2. May 2, 1939. Lou Gehrig takes himself out of the Yankee lineup due to the effects of ALS, ending his record streak of 2130 consecutive games in this ballpark.

                  3. The cover of the very first Sports Illustrated in 1953 featured a photograph of a baseball batter in what ballpark?
