On Old Ballpark Trivia

The old ballparks were special for many reasons: quirky corners, odd shapes dictated by various aspects as houses, streets, railroads, or whatever. On the other hand, the diamond palaces serving as an arena for the battlefield known as the national pastime were nowhere near the lavish facilities of today, although the distances within the diamond remain the same. Maybe these are some of the reasons Wrigley and Fenway remain special places, or why marks note the spot of some of the baseball shrines from the past.

Here’s a quiz about the old places. Actually two quizzes in one. For those needing a tune-up, match the ballparks to the city. Then (or otherwise) match the description or feature to the ballpark. There’s only one answer for each and all parks are used only once. Answers are found below the video, a YouTube musical slide show of some of those places of not all that long ago.
