Three Iconic American Ballparks – Ebbets Field, Wrigley Field and Yankee Stadium – as they were in 1940’s.
Ebbets Field was the home of the Brooklyn Dodgers baseball team of the National League from 1913 to 1957, but was also home to three National Football League teams in the 1920s.
Wrigley Field is still the home ballpark of the Chicago Cubs. It was built in 1914 as Weeghman Park for the Chicago Federal League baseball team, the Chicago Whales. The Cubs played their first game at Weeghman Park on April 20, 1916. In 1921, chewing gum magnate William Wrigley, Jr. acquired complete control of the Cubs. It was called Cubs Park from 1920 through 1926, before officially becoming Wrigley Field for the 1927 season.
Yankee Stadium was the home ballpark of the New York Yankees from 1923 to 1973 and again from 1976 to 2008. It was also the home of the New York Giants football team from 1956 through the first part of the 1973-74 football season. When it opened it was hailed as a one-of-a-kind facility in the country for its size. Over the course of its history, it became one of the most famous venues in the United States, having hosted a variety of events and historic moments during its existence.
