  • Most Bizarre non-Baseball Events In Ballparks

    Here's my entry -

    June 27, 1968 - at old Wrigley Field, L.A. - a year before it was torn down and seven years since the Angels played there - Alice Cooper and Frank Zappa headlined the "Phantasmagoria' Festival

    My vote goes for ski jumping in Dodger Stadium.

    I see great things in baseball. It's our game - the American game.

                      that ski jumping thing was awfully high...

                      I think its totally awesome, but others would think its weird, but KISS peformed a HUGE concert at Dodger Stadium as part of their their 1998 tour...

                        I would think when it comes to bizarre moments having nothing to do with baseball, it doesn't get any weirder than this plane crash at Memorial Stadium minutes after a Colts playoff game had ended.

                          Man, I remember that...a miracle no one, including the pilot was hurt...although I'm quite sure he lost a pair of underwear from his wardrobe.

                            not a baseball field but still a classic park.

                              Thank you Chef Bill for the RFK bowling pic. I'd love to know more about the circumstances. It appears to be a gameday by the team uniforms. Pretty amazing they had the technology to both install and disassemble a bowling lane in time for a game when considering it was the early 60s.


                              Can't imagine the liability today on those giant slides at Dodgers and Soldier.
