About This File

A classic stadium that the Indians played in from 1891 to 1946.

 

A brief history.

 

Constructed in 1891 east of downtown in Cleveland’s Hough neighborhood, League Park – despite renovations in 1910 that replaced the original wood with concrete and steel, expanding capacity to over 20,000 – was deemed to be too small and antiquated for professional sports after Municipal Stadium opened. The Indians played their last game at League Park in 1946, but for ten years prior to that they had been playing weekend and holiday games at the bigger stadium on the lakefront.

 

League Park was the site of the 1920 World Series, in which the Indians beat the Brooklyn Dodgers for their first ever championship. In the 1940s, the park also housed the Cleveland Rams – the last of a series of Cleveland professional football teams predating the Browns – and the Negro League’s Cleveland Buckeyes, Negro League champions in 1945. Much of the stadium was demolished in the early 1950s, when the site became a public park. However, a few remnants – including the baseball diamond itself – still remain in place today.

 

This ball park was made by SeanO and I am just re-uploading it to the website. All credit goes to him.
