  • Any information/pictures of these stadiums?

    i havent been able to find a lot of information or photos on the following stadiums:

    1.) A.L. Park (washington senators)
    2.) Bennett Park (detroit tigers)
    3.) Columbia Park (philiadelphia athletics)

    maybe these stadiums were under different names at one point or possibly werent around for too long, it's also possible i wasn't seraching hard enough too!

    This link has some good info on Columbia Park and a couple of photos. I think I have some pictures in an old Phillies yearbook about the history of ballparks in the city but I'll have to try and track them down. Until then, here's my contribution.

    Also you can read a little more about it here, it's an excerpt from an Old Philadelphia Ballparks book. Unfortunately the images don't seem to show up.

                    thanks man, i like the drawing, it's easier to see what the stadium looked like considering a lot of the pictures of the older stadiums are in black and white and sometimes hard to make out.
