No ballpark in Philadelphia was more revered than the one at Twenty-first Street and Lehigh Avenue. Originally called Shibe Park and later Connie Mack Stadium, it opened in 1909 as America's first steel-and-concrete stadium. When it closed in 1970, it had earned a special place i...n the hearts and minds of Philadelphia sports fans. Home of the Athletics for 46 years, the Phillies for 32 and a half seasons, and the Eagles for 18 years, it was also the site of many boxing matches, Negro League baseball games, and college and high school baseball and football games. Over the years, as the area developed, Shibe Park became known for its obstructed views, delicious hot dogs, Sunday curfews, absence of beer, and boobirds. Along with memorable teams and games, the ballpark played host to eight World Series and two All-Star Games.
