South End Grounds - Boston This is a photo of one of the great ballparks of the 19th century: South End Grounds, the home of Boston's National League club. Having a short distance to both foul poles and a vast center field, the park opened to great acclaim on May 25, 1888. It was actually the second of three ballparks to bear that name. Nearly six years later, on May 15, 1894, the mostly wooden park burned to the ground during a game. (Police placed the blame on kids playing with matches under the bleachers.) Another 117 buildings in the neighborhood also were destroyed in the fire. The National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown has a fabulous computerized 'virtual exhibit' on this ballpark based on photographic evidence.

Why don't people vote for their own stuff?

I generally don't vote for any of my own posts--unless someone gives it a poor rating.
