Top 10 Oldest Baseball Stadium Still Standing

Top 10 Oldest Baseball Stadium Still Standing

The game of baseball has changed a lot since its creation in 1845. Gone are the days of players throwing underhand, and now they throw overhand. Gone are the days when one person pitched to nine fielders; now there are usually three people pitching (pitching rotation) to eight or nine fielders depending on if it’s an American or National League game. For obvious reasons, many stadiums have been demolished throughout time but these ten oldest stadiums still standing remain as testaments to how much the game has changed throughout history. So if you’re looking for a tour of where America’s pastime was once played, here is a list of the top 10 oldest still standing baseball stadiums.

What is the oldest baseball stadium still standing?

Fenway Park

Every time you head out to a baseball game, whether it’s your traditional summer pastime or part of the World Series, you’re probably taking advantage of all that Fenway Park has to offer. From its storied history and hallowed hallways to the modern amenities and thrilling player performances, we can’t imagine a better place for Red Sox fans — and all lovers of the sport — to gather than Boston’s Fenway Park.

Fenway Park is renowned as one of America’s most historic ballparks. It was the nation’s first and only large-scale stadium built specifically for baseball during the 20th century. But what many may not know is also how old this park is. The ballpark was born in 1912 when it was built on the site of a former real estate. It has since been extensively renovated, but its structure is little changed from when it opened with the original grandstand along the third baseline.

The park’s history runs deep. Legendary players like Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, and Carl Yastrzemski have all put their mark here with feats that still give fans goosebumps to this day. Fenway Park was also the site of the most dramatic game in World Series history when Red Sox’s first baseman Bill Buckner let an easy ground ball trickle through his legs in game six against New York Mets, quickly turning into an epic fail for Bostonians everywhere.

Even more recently, Fenway Park is where David Ortiz hit one of the most clutch home runs in postseason history — a grand slam against the rivaling New York Yankees that gave Boston hope during the 2004 ALCS.

Bostonians and baseball fans worldwide remain as passionate as ever about Fenway Park. It’s what gives this historic stadium all of its life and energy, so fitting for America’s oldest ballpark.

Wrigley Field 

Wrigley Field is the second oldest remaining major league ballpark behind Fenway Park in Boston.

Built-in 1914, Wrigley Field is the second oldest ballpark still in use by a major league team (after Boston’s Fenway Park).

The Chicago Cubs played their first game at West Side Grounds in 1894. The following year, owner Charles H. Weeghman hired his architect Zachary Taylor Davis to develop a new steel-and-concrete park on the same site that would seat 14,000 fans.

It was immediately dubbed “Weeghman Park”, later renamed Cubs Park after the Chicago Whales of the Federal League began using it as their home field in 1915, then finally christened Wrigley Field ten years later in honor of William Wrigley Jr., who had acquired complete control over the Cubs organization in 1921.

In the years that followed, Wrigley Field was expanded several times over its original capacity to accommodate a large-scale influx of new fans. In 1938, for example, two upper decks were added and the stadium’s footprint was extended further onto both Waveland and Sheffield Avenues. By then, Weeghman Park had been renamed Cubs Park after its second major league team tenant.

In 1916 a rainstorm caused part of the left-field wall to collapse in a game between the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds.  It forced) construction of a higher wall with protective wire mesh fencing in the left field that remained there until 1969 when it was replaced by a horseshoe-shaped bleacher section that ran from the left-field foul pole to the left-center field power alley. The iconic ivy-covered outfield wall was built in 1937, and later expanded to cover much of the area behind it, as well as partway down the right-field line.)

It was during this support that Cubs President William Veeck decided that Wrigley needed a vibrant scoreboard. In 1937 he privately funded the construction of a large hand-operated scoreboard at the base of the bleachers, which he sold advertising space atop for additional income after its completion. Several years later, Bill’s father and legendary baseball owner, Phillip K. Wrigley, had a translucent “Spite Wall” put up to block any possible view from rooftops overlooking the park across Waveland Avenue.

The ballpark has been the home of some of baseball’s most celebrated players, managers, and coaches throughout its long history. From 1915 to 2016, Wrigley Field had been the home field for 33 different managers including Hall-of-Famers Frank Chance, Joe McCarthy, Gabby Hartnett, Ryne Sandberg, and Bruce Sutter.

In addition to hosting Major League Baseball games, Wrigley Field is also used for concerts and other special events. The first concert ever held at Wrigley was by The Beatles on August 20, 1966. In recent years, such performers as Paul McCartney, Elton John, and Billy Joel have all taken the stage at Wrigley Field.

DODGER STADIUM  (LOS ANGELES DODGERS)

DODGER STADIUM, located in Los Angeles, California, is one of the most famous baseball stadiums in the U.S. and has held many historical events.

On August 9th, 1959, Major League Baseball’s National League expanded westward for the first time with the addition of a new franchise in Los Angeles. The team was named after their host city and took up residence at Wrigley Field; home to another MLB team (the Chicago Cubs). During this early period, Dodger Stadium itself was little more than an empty lot – construction would not begin until 1962. By opening day in 1962 – still, several years before any other MLB stadium opened on the West Coast – ample seating was available inside the unfinished venue, as temporary stands had been erected in the outfield.

Dodger Stadium has been home to some of baseball’s most iconic players and moments. On October 3, 1965, Sandy Koufax pitched a perfect game – the first in MLB history to be thrown at Dodger Stadium. In 1974, Dodgers outfielder Reggie Smith hit three home runs in one game – still the only player ever to do so at Dodger Stadium. And on October 16th, 1988, Kirk Gibson hit his legendary walk-off home run in Game 1 of the World Series, leading the Dodgers to an unforgettable victory.

More recently, Dodger Stadium was thrust into the national spotlight when it hosted game 5 of the 2017 World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros. It was the first World Series game played on the West Coast in nearly 20 years, and an unprecedented number of fans watched on television as the Dodgers overcame a two-run deficit to win it all in extra innings.

ANGEL STADIUM OF ANAHEIM (LOS ANGELES ANGELS)

Opened: 1966

Capacity: 45,050 (baseball)

Location: Anaheim, California

Tenants: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (1966-present)

Angel Stadium is a baseball stadium located in Anaheim, California. It is the home ballpark of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, a Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise. The stadium was originally built in 1966 as the home of the California Angels, an American League (AL) franchise. The team changed its name to the Anaheim Angels in 1997, and to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in 2005.

Angel Stadium has been home to four MLB All-Star Games (1972, 1979, 1992, and 2003), two National League Division Series (2002 and 2007), one National League Championship Series (2005), and two World Series (2002 and 2009). It hosted the 1974 and 2010 Major League Baseball All-Star Games, the 1984 and 2009 National League Division Series, the 2005 National League Championship Series, and the 2002 and 2009 World Series.

The stadium was slightly modified in 1998 to accommodate the Anaheim Angels, including the addition of a new right-field pavilion. In 2006, major renovations were made to Angel Stadium, including a rebuilt facade, new entrances, a new outfield concourse, and a new high-definition video board. The most recent renovation project began in 2013 and was completed before the start of the 2014 season. The project included demolition of the left-field terrace and bullpen areas, as well as the construction of a new three-level building featuring restaurants, team offices, a museum, and a 5-story Angels Hall of Fame. In addition to the stadium renovations, the Anaheim lobby was upgraded with new concessions stands and exhibits.

Plans for the stadium include more extensive renovations, as well as possible relocation into a planned “Baseball Disneyland” in or near Orange County. The team has been approved by Anaheim city officials to build a 68,000 square foot baseball academy next to Angel Stadium. The decision is partially based on Major League Baseball’s desire that each team has its proprietary facility for training players from year-round play up to rookie leagues. 

RINGCENTRAL COLISEUM (OAKLAND ATHLETICS)

The RingCentral Coliseum is a stadium located in Oakland, California. It is the home of the Oakland Athletics of Major League Baseball (MLB). The stadium has a capacity of 35,067 spectators and was built in 1966.

The RingCentral Coliseum is famous for its home-field advantage: it has had one of the best home-field advantages in all of the American sports since 1982, due to fans’ extreme devotion to the team. During that time, the Athletics have won nearly two-thirds of their games at home, such as a 20–6 record during 22–game winning streaks. The stadium has been nicknamed “The O.co” by some fans on Twitter and other social media sites because it can be difficult to tell whether or not O refers to the stadium’s old name, Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum, or its current sponsor/ namesake, O which is the company that purchased the naming rights. The stadium’s address is 7000 Coliseum Way, Oakland, CA 94621.

The RingCentral Coliseum is currently under renovation, which began in November 2014 and is scheduled to be completed in time for the Athletics’ home opener on April 17, 2019. The $200 million projects will add new seating, a new scoreboard, expanded food and beverage options, as well as new clubhouses and training facilities for both the Athletics and Oakland Raiders of the National Football League (NFL).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why are some stadiums torn down and not rebuilt?

The memories of a stadium often outlive the actual structure itself. Sometimes, a new stadium is built with some or all of the same seats from its predecessor. But more often than not, once a stadium reaches the end of its useful life, it’s time to start over from scratch. In cities that have hosted multiple professional teams in one downtown area, like in New York or Chicago, it’s not uncommon for multiple stadiums to be in use at the same time. When teams move or a new one is born, the older stadium is usually left to crumble.

There are a few reasons why a stadium might be torn down rather than rebuilt. The most common reason is that the stadium is no longer up to code. With the advent of new safety regulations after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, many older stadiums were deemed too dangerous to continue using. Another reason might be financial. If a team moves or goes bankrupt, the city or state might not have the money to tear down and rebuild the stadium. And finally, politics can also play a role in whether or not a stadium is torn down.

Examples of stadiums that have been torn down, but not rebuilt include Fenway Park in Boston; Wrigley Field in Chicago; and Candlestick Park in San Francisco.

A second example is Shea Stadium which was demolished to be replaced by CitiField. Also, the original Yankee Stadium was demolished to be replaced by a new Yankee Stadium in the same location. Only some seats were reused from the original Yankee Stadium at the new stadium. Another example would be Old Trafford, the former home of Manchester United which has also seen two rebuilds since its last update. However much like Old Trafford, this approach does not always work as proven with the likes of Elland Road (which hosted three cup games) or St James’ Park (failed to host a single game after its rebuild)

The idea of rebuilding an old stadium is not new. The only example in the world of this happening is the Olympic stadiums in Athens, Greece. All the Olympic venues have been completely rebuilt with very few elements reused from their previous incarnations. 

A prime example of this approach would be Wembley Stadium in London. While being substantially larger than its predecessor it also has more luxury boxes and other amenities making it financially viable long-term rather than just having one big event every four years when it hosted the Olympics or when England hosted UEFA Euro 1996. 

Another prime example of what might become modern-day stadiums built on top of running tracks is Hampden Park, Glasgow, Scotland. The track and the stadium (built-in 1903 and reconstructed in the late 20th century) coexisted for over a century despite Hampden Park hosting multiple events. However, as of August 2018, it has been announced that Hampden Park will undergo reconstruction with running tracks to be removed as well as the replacement of all seats.

Why did they build ballparks so long ago?

For one, the game of baseball was invented in the mid-19th century. At that time, there weren’t many other entertainment options available to the public, so baseball stadiums became popular places to congregate and watch games. Additionally, most of the early ballparks were small and intimate, which created a more exciting and personal experience for fans.

Nowadays, technology has allowed for much larger stadiums that can accommodate tens of thousands of people. However, this often comes at the cost of a less intimate experience. As a result, many fans now prefer the smaller ballparks that are more common in Europe and Japan. Consequently, new ballparks are being built with capacities, and older ballparks are being renovated, to better cater to fans’ desires. So, while the reasons for building ballparks so long ago maybe no longer as relevant, the trend shows no sign of reversing shortly.

What is the smallest MLB stadium?

The smallest MLB stadium is Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California. It has a seating capacity of 56,000. The second smallest MLB stadium is Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas. It has a seating capacity of 41,500.

Minute Maid Park was originally built in 2000 and underwent an $80 million renovation in 2012. It is the fifth oldest stadium in the MLB.

Both Dodger Stadium and Minute Maid Park have been used as venues for the World Series. Dodger Stadium was used for four World Series, in 1981, 1988, 2008, and 2017. Minute Maid Park has been used for two World Series, in 2005 and 2017.

Dodger Stadium is located at 1000 Elysian Park Avenue, Los Angeles, California 90012.

Bus Route 222 starts at Union Station and goes to Dodger Stadium. Bus Routes 439 and 460 starts at either Hollywood/Vine Metro Rail station and go to Dodger Stadium as well.

Minute Maid Park is located at 501 Crawford Street, Houston, Texas 77002. It is accessible via I-45 from Downtown Houston or Eastex Freeway(s) from Southeast of downtown Houston. There are more than 30 different freeway exits to get to Minute Maid Park from either direction of a freeway. The easiest way to get there without a car would be by taking METRO Light Rail service with a ride on the Purple Line towards Northline Transit Center/HCC or Fannin South Station and transfer to bus Route 81. Bus Route 81 starts at the Northline Transit Center/HCC Station and goes to Minute Maid Park. Another way would be by taking bus Routes 1, 3, or 9 from Downtown Houston and getting off at the corner of Crawford Street and Texas Avenue which is within walking distance of Minute Maid Park. 

Who was the first team to play at a new stadium after it opened?

The New York Yankees were the first team to play at a new stadium after it opened. The Yankees played an exhibition game at Yankee Stadium on April 18, 1923, just four days before they began playing there in the regular season. While the stadium had been under construction for almost three years, this was its first baseball game. 

Why do some teams have newer stadiums than others?

There are a few reasons for this. The most obvious reason is that some teams have more money than others. This means that they can afford to build newer stadiums.

Another reason is that some teams have been around for longer than others. This means that they have had more time to make money and can afford to build new stadiums.

Finally, some teams may have been given more money by the government to build new stadiums. This is because the government wants to help promote tourism in the area.

So, there are a few reasons why some teams have newer stadiums than others. It mainly comes down to money and how long the team has been around. However, sometimes the government also gets involved and gives money to certain teams to help them build new stadiums.

What is the largest stadium in the world?
