From Cooperstown, Historic Street Signs Recall an Era When Stadiums Had Character!
I was 10, and the Pittsburgh Pirates were the worst team in baseball — but I didn't care. My brother and his buddies took me to Forbes Field, after first picking up 2 six-packs of Iron City across from the park.
We pushed through the crowd under the stands, walked through the portal, and then I saw the dazzling, emerald-green infield grass for the first time. Black-and-white TV didn't prepare me for this! The size of the playing field was overwhelming — over 440' to straightaway centerfield — so spacious they parked the batting cage out there during the game! And ivy so thick on the brick walls that batted balls often got lost in it. Now a small section of the left field wall is all that remains, along with the memories of thousands of "bucs" fans.
If you can remember the ballpark where you worshipped as a kid, order one of our Cooperstown Stadium Street Signs for your den, family room, garage, or office. They'll help you remember a time when genuine heroes roamed the outfield. And when you really believed that if you rooted hard enough, you could absolutely influence the outcome of the game. Actually, I still believe that! Solid-steel with deeply embossed letters; 6" wide by 3 feet long; in team colors.
