  • Ballpark Hall of Fame

    Which five ballparks should be the charter members of the baseball park Hall of Fame?Current ballparks are allowed as long as they are 40 years old or more. My five choices are Ebbets Field,The Polo Grounds, old Yankee Stadium(before the renovations), Tiger Stadium and Crosley Field.

    OOOHH!! Very interesting topic there.

    I would have to agree with you on at least 3 of those.

    I would put Fenway and Wrigley in this charter class.

          Its more fun for me to include only demolished parks.


          Well.....it sounded fun in theory

          Shibe Park
          Polo Grounds
          LA Wrigley Field
          Forbes Field
          Crosley Field

          Ebbets will get the votes anyway....so LA Wrigley is in.

            I would definitely include Shibe Park and Forbes Field because of their importance in being the first modern (steel and concreete) ballparks built in the U.S..

            So my charter members would be:

            Shibe Park
            Forbes Field
            Wrigley Field
            Fenway Park
            Yankee Stadium

              Shibe Park
              Polo Grounds
              Wrigley Field
              Fenway Park
              Yankee Stadium


              Sixth park: L.A. Wrigley, deserving of first class status, but the other 5 are superior.

                LA Wrigley is an excellent choice. Lots of historic memories in that ballpark.
