  • Diamonds & Gridirons

    Back in the 1920s & 1930s, both Fordham & NYU were nationally renowned college football powers. As such, both frequently played important intersectional games against powerhouses from the midwest, south & Pacific coast. Here is an oddity: Fordham, which is located in the Bronx, usually played it's important games at the Polo Grounds while NYU, which is in Manhattan, played it's marquee matchups at Yankee Stadium. You would think it would have been the reverse. Does any NYC sports history buff know why this was?-Brownie31
