Long before stadiums had corporate names with as much charm as stale popcorn, they were named after men and locations. Sure the names may have been just as corporate but I'll take Briggs and Comiskey over Comerica and US Cellular any day. These cathedrals were meeting places, a spot to spend an afternoon cheering for the home team. They're all gone now but the memories that took place within their walls still remain, even if now home plate is a parking lot and left field is a mall.
What didn't Muehlebach, later Municipal Stadium, have? How about "Harvey", the rabbit holding a basket of balls that emerged from the ground when the umpire needed a new ball? Or "Little Blowhard" a compressed air device that blew the dirt off of home plate? Not unique enough for you? Maybe you should have spent some time in the petting zoo down the left field line or with the flock of sheep and shepherd on the right field line.
