League Park

Unread postby tzxb4v » Mon Apr 23, 2007 4:35 pm

So the wife and i decided to take a trip past League park on Sunday. I had never personally seen it and from what i had read about it, it was something special. At one time! I took the drive over to 66th and Lexington where some of the greatest players ever in our team's and baseball's history played ball. (Feller, Lemon, Cy Young, Boudreau, etc.) I have to say i was not filled with warm feelings of a teams history but instead i drove past felling a little angry almost embaressed for how it looks now and the way it was just tossed aside like it was something not worth saving. I love history and espesially history i can personally be proud of, as most Cleveland fans know history is about all we have, that is with sports. I have heard rumors of rebuilding it and having city leagues play there or maybe even exhibition games but from what i see it looks like the next step is having a nice parking lot there. i would have to say the most depressing view was the graffiti sprayed on the bricks. If they are going to rebuild the once home of the Indians, Buckeyes, And Spiders I would love to see it done soon before any more damage occures.

What would give you the impression that anything built in that location is going to see any amount of respect?
