If you want to talk about historic ballparks, Comiskey Park is likely to make every list. Home to the Chicago White Sox for 80 seasons, it saw incredible players and teams set foot on its grounds throughout the years. Built in 1910, Comiskey Park was the site of four World Series and three All-Star Games, various rock concerts, and the infamous Disco Demolition Night. Old school White Sox fans that want to commemorate your epic ballpark and a piece of Chicago's history, we've got you. Check out our Comiskey Park T-Shirt.
The San Francisco Giants had the honor of calling Candlestick Park their home from 1958 to 2014. Famous (or infamous) for its uniquely challenging weather, Candlestick Park will go down in history as one of the coldest stadiums ever played in.
Candlestick Park was the site for eight NFC Championship games, two MLB All-Star Games, and a World Series, as well as a long list of other sporting events and concerts (including the Beatle's last concert in 1966). Want to show your love for this legendary stadium? Our Candlestick Park T-Shirt is the perfect way to do so.
The Milwaukee Braves, the Chicago White Sox, and the Milwaukee Brewers were all major league baseball teams who were locals to the Milwaukee County Stadium during its glory days. The Milwaukee County Stadium had a long and impressive history of baseball games and teams, as well as hosting a long list of concerts and other sporting events. If you loved this stadium as much as we did, this Milwaukee County Stadium tee is perfect for you.
Yet another absolutely legendary stadium that no longer exists, the Baltimore Memorial Stadium will go down in history as the Orioles' first home. If you were lucky enough to go to a game before it was demolished in 2001, you'd remember what a pleasure it was to watch a baseball game there. Orioles fans, you know you need this tee shirt.
Baseball's history indicates its establishment as a professional sport traced back to the Cincinnati Red Stockings in the late 19th century. Crosley Field Park was witness to this pivotal moment in history, which is why it has won its place on this list. Check out our Crosley Field t-shirt here!
Time to get nostalgic because any baseball fan can tell you that Ebbets Field Stadium is one of the most significant ballparks in baseball history. Similar to Crosley Field, Brooklyn was the setting for the first moments of professional baseball history, and for almost a century, it had Ebbets Field to show for it. Dodgers fans, this Ebbets Field t-shirt is for you.
Philadelphia's Shibe Park is another twentieth-century beauty, home to the Philadelphia Athletics. This stadium not only witnessed the team's best years, but its beautiful façade is also a testament to early twentieth-century architecture and will go down in history for it. That's why our Shibe Park t-shirts are extra special.
Shorter lived than others on this list, the Atlanta Fulton County Stadium still deserves recognition. Home to the Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Fulton Stadium was the site of baseball history: Hank Aaron’s 715th home run on April 8, 1974, which broke Babe Ruth’s record of 714 home runs. Just for that fact, we'd wear an Atlanta Fulton County Stadium tee.
Cleveland Municipal Stadium, also known as Lakefront Stadium, was one of the biggest stadiums of its time. Home to the Cleveland Indians (now Cleveland Guardians) for several years, it's a controversial stadium precisely because of its size. Guardians fans, we still think Lakefront deserves a place on this list and its own t-shirt. What do you think?
Our final contestant: Manhattan's mythical Polo Grounds. Its impressive history begins with housing the New York Giants and then the New York Yankees (before the Yankee Stadium existed). As if those two incredible teams weren't enough, the Polo Grounds story ends with the Mets spending two seasons there. The stadium was demolished in 1963. Check out our Polo Grounds t-shirt!
We could go on forever listing vintage ballparks past and present that have left their mark on this beloved sport's history. If you're a baseball history fan yourself and want the world to know, check out our collection of Vintage Stadium and Arena T-shirts and Apparel.
