  • Final resting place in a Stadium

    Would a Baseball franchise ever do this in the U.S.?
    Excerpt:
    The Barcelona-based Primera Liga club have unveiled plans for a repository for 20,000 fans' ashes at their new stadium Cornella-El Prat, which is under construction and scheduled to open in November.

    I know someone who scattered some of their mother's ashes at Shea. She was a huuuuge Mets fan.

            I bet you can do sprinkle ashes at stadiums if you tell the owners how big of a fan they were. Some teams could use the spirital help!
            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 remember reading a story when Old Comiskey Park was being torn down and replaced by what now is The Cell in Chicago.

                  It stated that the infield dirt was taken from the old to the new park because there were more than a few Sox fan's ashes mixed in with the infield dirt and the Sox management wanted that to continue.

                    Jim Umbricht's ashes were spread in the Astrodome while it was under construction in 1964. His number 32 was retired on Opening Day, 1965. He passed away from cancer.

                      Where do you think that part of the Turnpike gets its aroma.

                          Just like the "Dying Cub Fan's Last Request" Steve Goodman's ashes were sprinkled across Wrigley Field.

                            Maybe if they were slightly more tasteful, lol. Almost expect a bobble head (with eyes closed?) to be resting on top of them!

                            I tell everybody (half-jokingly) to just put my ashes in my '60's Mr. Met bank bobble head and put me on top of the TV!

                              I did not know that. I had his 1964 baseball card. Looking at it always made me uncomfortable as a kid for on the back side it had said he had passed away. I still have card however. :candle:
