THREE CLASSIC BASEBALL PARKS OPENED THIS DAY IN HISTORY- TIGER STADIUM/ FENWAY PARK/ WRIGLEY FIELD

tigers60

Three great ballparks out of the past opened on this date in history. In 1912 Tiger Stadium in Detroit and Fenway Park in Boston opened and four years later Wrigley Field in Chicago opened. Tiger Stadium has been gone nearly twenty years now [hard to believe} but Fenway and Wrigley are still going strong. I have been to at least a dozen games over the years at Tiger and Fenway and three games at Wrigley. Fenway and Wrigley have always been more storied and glorified than Tiger Stadium but to me there is no question which of the three is/was the greatest- Tiger Stadium. I never had a bad seat at Tiger Stadium [an uncomfortable seat yes but not a truly bad seat} I’ve been to games at thirty-five ballparks [17 of the presently used ballparks and 18 that are no longer in existence} and I’d rank Tiger Stadium as my favorite- followed closely by PNC Park in Pittsburgh- my home ballpark.

  1. My favorite is Wrigley Field which has adapted to aging. Too many poles at Old Tiger Stadium. Some interesting seats I found at Tiger Stadium were center field upper deck which kind of hung close to the field.

  2. A great seat at Fenway is a great seat but good luck being able to get that great seat. Some interesting seats I found at Tiger Stadium were center field upper deck which kind of hung close to the field.
