    1. The first night game in World Series history ws played in this park.

    2. This stadium's original grandstand was built in 1879 and hosted horse racing, stage shows, football and other sporting events, fireworks displays, livestock judging and other fair events. It later became an MLB stadium.

    3. This stadium's wacky 70s promotions included:

    --Wedlock and Headlock Night, when 34 couples were married at home plate before a game, and a wrestling match was presented after the game;

    -- Races in which radio announcers and the club owner rode on the backs of ostriches;

    -- The "$25,000 Cash Scramble," in which $25,000 in single bills was scattered over the field and fans chosen at random were given 2 minutes to grab as much cash as they could;

    -- Wishbone Salad Dressing Night, in which fans scrambled through a huge salad bowl to find keys to a new car;

    -- Mattress Stacking Night, when a local fraternity set a record for the most people stacked atop a single mattress.
