    Milwaukee County Stadium as Cleveland Stadium was somewhat believable.


    On the other hand, Oriole Park at Camden Yards as Cleveland Stadium was absolutely ludicirous. The movie came out I believe in late 1993 after Cleveland Stadium had closed--I'm wondering why they just didn't pretend it was Jacobs Field, which would have made a little more sense.

    I've noticed a couple of movies where Dodger Stadium stood in for Anaheim Stadium. The Naked Gun, for example.

    All things considered, I think they did a decent job in 61* turning Tiger Stadium into Yankee Stadium, albiet with some CGI help.

        Oracle Arena where the Golden State Warriors play. Definitely one of the stranger looking arenas I have seen.

          It looks like it had a great view, its a shame davis had to go and ruin it for the shake of money! So now my question is what is worse what happened at oakland or what happened to the angels stadium because of football?
          The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.

            I'd say what happened in Oakland was worse. Anaheim at least kept the design consistent and on a human scale. Oakland's addition had a completely different deck structure built, not to mention the upper seating was way higher than the rest of the stadium. It completely ruined a nice looking ballpark.

              Yeah it definately makes the baseball feel of the stadium look odd, but man cutting out the angels big A really is just as sad to me!

                Anaheim Stadium wasn't that bad as a football/baseball facility. It wasn't spacious like Oakland. However, what made it so terrible was the 20,000 to 30,000 empty seats in the upper decks in the outfield. Today, the only link to the stadiums football past is the right field pavillion. Couldn't tell it was a football stadium.

                  In major league 2, what were they trying to achieve? You are right, that was the most ridiculous setting.

                      By the way, I could have sworn we already have a thread like this, but I can't find it. If anybody can find it and bump it, I'll merge the two threads.

                            I thought the same thing.

                              What I always found unique about Oakland Coliseum is how they could orient the football field in two different directions. You have the typical left field to right field set up the Raiders use today of course, but I remember back when the USFL's Oakland Invaders played there, the football field ran from home plate to center field. You can clearly see the faded football field markings in the outfield this pic. The Raiders used this set-up in the early '70s too, as I remember seeing faded yard lines on the infield grass during the A's World Series games. I could be wrong, but I think they did it that way because it wouldn't have been feasible to set up the temporary bleachers in the outfield for the Raiders, then have to dismantle them again for the A's. When the A's were done playing for the year, then the field reverted back to it's normal configuration. My guess is that season ticket holders who had 50-yard-line seats kinda got screwed during those early season games when their seats wound up behind the end zone.

                              I'm also curious if there's any thought of renovating the Coliseum after the A's get their own ballpark. It would make sense to tear down the bulk of the stadium and put in a matching second "Mt. Davis" on the home plate side of the field.

                                Clear construction going on right up against the outfield...probably the only construction done at the ballpark since opening was when Mt. Davis was built...
