Crosley Field, Ohio

Crosley Field, Cincinnati

Major League Baseball night games debuted at this Cincinnati park in 1935, with FDR switching on the lights from the White House. One of the game's smallest, most intimate stadiums, players had to run uphill to the outfield fence.

This postcard is from the set:
'Baseball's Legendary Playing Fields, The U.S. Postal Service Ready-to-Mail Postal Stamped Cards'
From 'Cooperstown Collection'

It has the matching 21 cent stamp imprinted on the back. - unused but from 2001
