    The Bears' record at Wrigley Field is 221-89-22, which adds up to 322 games, which is the most by one team ever played in any stadium.

          It actually always had a football pressbox. It was enlarged when the Lambs came to the venue and dismantled duing the last renovation.

            Great pics there Bluesteve. Keep up the great work.

            When they dismantled the old football seats,I had hoped that they would have brought back some form of the original big A scoreboard,that gave the stadium its identity in the first place.

                In addition to the Patriots Fenway Park also housed Boston's two Division 1 football programs for decades: Boston College Eagles until 1956 and Boston University Terriers until 1953.

                    After Georgia left So Cal , the mouse did manage a major renovation to the Big A and it is a fantastic baseball venue again. :gt

                    Keep football out of baseball parks and loose the astroturf.

                    Oh yeah, the LA Coliseum was a baseball park, too that has a little football played there.
                    I agree that stadiums are best used for a single purpose.
                    The LA Coleseum was a football stadium used for baseball. The only positive about that was the attenance records set in the 59 WS, which are untouchable.
                    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the Rockies played their first year in Mile High.
                    Jack Murphy Stadium in San Diego is a perfect example of what can happen when a stadium is used for two sports. When the city wanted the Super Bowl, they expanded the stadium and made it less baseball friendly, eventually forcing tohe Padres to seek a new stadium.
                    KC had the right idea when they built seperate stadiums for the Chiefs and Royals in the 70's. It just took other cities a while to realize their folly in having dual purpose stadiums.

                    Welcome back ARod. Hope you are a Yankee forever.

                      Plus I never did like watching the early season football games where the teams are playing on infield dirt on part of the field. What a pain that must be for the ground crews to switch fields back and forth all September. Plus I bet there's been plenty a fielder who had to take an error because the ball took a bad hop on a divot from Sunday's football game.

                            You forgot Fenway, home of the Redskins and Patriots. Also, Angel Stadium is still used for big amateur football games from time to time.

                              The NFL Films Super Bowl Collection DVD box sets (stay with me here...) have each year's season recap films as extras. One of the things I enjoy about the seasons in the 60s and early 70s are football games at Yankee Stadium, Wrigley, Fenway, Cleveland, and even some more obvious ones like Metropolitan Stadium.

                                Where did they play in between the early 60's and when 3 Rivers was built? Pitt?
