Stadium Graveyard, And Proposed But Unbuilt Stadiums
Pointed out to me lately by Bleed Cubbie Blue's Al Yellon, a fascinating look at old baseball stadiums, and stadiums proposed but never built. Of particular interest among the latter here:
- Wrigley Field (Los Angeles) expansion that would have extended the outfield and upper deck to wrap all the way around the park. The Dodgers instead elected to play temporarily at the Coliseum.
- The Buckminster Fuller-inspired Brooklyn Dome, which would have been the first of its kind.
- A different Angels Stadium that would have been situated in the abandoned Baldwin Hills Dam site.
- Here's one that sounds like an Irwin Allen movie waiting to happen: a stadium floating in Mission Bay in San Diego.
