  • Stadium Demolition

    In browsing through all the other current threads, I thought it would be unique if everyone with stadium demolitoin pictures could share them here.

      Here's a picture to get it started.
      Polo Grounds, New York
      A worker removes his hat April 10, 1964, to salute during the demolition of the Polo Grounds, home, at times, of the Yankees,
      Giants and Mets. The wrecking ball is the same used to raze Ebbets Field in 1960. (Photo by Bruce Bennett Studio/Getty Images)

        This is from Pat May, who like myself, attended many games there.

        A sad day indeed.

          They should have just connected the two stadiums like that.

              Ebbets Field








              Shibe Park. Too bad Philly couldn't have at least kept this part standing and incorporated it into the new construction on the site. But then again, this was the cookie cutter era. Out with the old!

                    Here is a video of a bunch of different views of the Kingdome demolition, including from within the Kingdome itself!

                    It even has some type of weird music for a soundtrack.

                      And if you look closely you'll see that the little row house that refused to sell to Griffith and caused the indentation in the CF wall still stood.

                        if I'm not mistaken, this guy is swinging a sledge hammer at the cornerstone that is now so lovingly preserved in the ballpark section of Cooperstown.



                        And why are these guys so happy? Maybe all those folks who are so weepy about the demise of Ebbetts and the like are folks who never set foot in the place.

                          swingin'....

                          the reason they are opening the cornerstone is that a "time capsule" was buried in that block during construction. floodlight fixtures and some seats went to randalls island stadium which was razed and ichan stadium on that site.
                          the turd in the punchbowl
                          reality really sucks.
                          enjoy the game more...

                              Y'think he actually felt good smashing that cornerstone? I'd have rather seen it transplanted north a few blocks where it could have been displayed in that new stadium that would be open in a few years for the Mets.
