  • The Old Ballparks

    I'm from Ohio and never saw a game at Ebbets Field but did see several at Crosley Field. The new parks are nice but I can do without exploding scoreboards, fireworks and VERY loud rock music. The teams today act like they have to entertain the fans every second,
    I would rather just watch the game and listen to the organ music between innings. Baseball is not a rock concert although some parks act like it is.
    It's too bad the Dodgers aren't in Brooklyn anymore. If ever a place needs a team, Brooklyn is it.
    I guess I'm showing my age but I go to the park to see the game, not to be annoyed by all the crap the owners think we need.

    Damn kids! With their new fangled rock music.

    By the way didn't Bill Veeck put the first exploding scoreboard/fireworks in old comiskey in the 50's?

          I first knew it as Briggs Stadium and it was a nice old ballyard.

          Like most of the old parks it was surrounded by two or three real good gin mills, for before and after libations.

          The park figured prominently in my biggest sports day ever. Went to Game 3, October 5, 1968, Cards win 7-3 and take a 2-1 Series lead. I go out to the airport, climb on a plane to LGA and go over to Shea Stadium to catch the Jets (on their way to their lone Super Bowl) beat the Chargers 23-20.

          Sorry to see it go.
          After 1957, it seemed like we would never laugh again. Of course, we did. Its just that we were never young again.
