Greetings, readers. This is a top ten list of stadiums and parks no longer with us. I have always enjoyed looking at football and baseball clips on YouTube from Baltimore’s Memorial Stadium. It was demolished in the early 2000’s. Such a beautiful stadium it was. That got me thinking. Why not do a top ten list of stadiums and ball parks not around anymore? So here they are in no particular order, besides #1.
#10. Shibe Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [Home of the Philadelphia Phillies and the Athletics before they moved to Kansas City and later to Oakland.]
#9. Shea Stadium in Flushing New York. [Home of the Mets and the Jets.]
#8. Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, New York. [Home of the Brooklyn Dodgers before they moved to Los Angles.]
#7. R.F.K Stadium in Washington D.C. [Home of the Redskins Football team, and the Senators Baseball team before they moved to Minnesota.]
#6. Crosley Field in Cincinnati, Ohio. [Home of the Reds.]
#5. Atlanta Fulton-County Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. [Home of the NFL’s Falcons, and MLB’s Braves.]
#4. The Orange Bowl Stadium in Miami, Florida. [Home to the Miami Dolphins NFL team, and University of Miami Hurricanes.]
#3. Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana. [Home to the New Orleans Saints.]
#2. Forbes Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. [Home of the NFL Pittsburgh Steelers, and the MLB Pirates.]
#1. Baltimore Memorial Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland. [Home to the Baltimore Colts before they moved to Indianapolis and MLB’s Orioles.]
Honorable Mention: Candlestick Park in San Francisco, California. [This is the final season for 49er football before they move to their new home the next NFL season. I believe this stadium is set to be demolished sometimes in the very near future.]
There they are, chime in with your list if you want to. Take care, have a good day, and happy reading.
