Old Ballparks' Exact Positioning, Volume Whatever +4: Shibe Park

View Larger Map

Shibe Park, Philadelphia, home of the A's, and later the Phillies. The planned move of home plate from here to The Vet via helicopter was canceled when fans started destroying the park during its final game in 1970.

There's now a gigantic church taking up the whole block.

Note: with these parks, there were usually dimension changes. Fences that were 500 or 600 feet away in the earlier days were moved in. I usually go with the final dimensions, or just a rough average, or something. Whatever. No biggie.
