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.
In 1944 Sportsman's Park became only the second stadium to be home to both World Series participants. That year the Cardinals took down the Browns 4 game to 2, mirroring, more or less, the overall fortunes of the two franchises. Soon the Browns would move to Baltimore and become the Orioles, the Cardinals would move downtown to Busch Memorial Stadium and Sportsman's Park would become just a memory.
