Photo of the Day: Philadelphia's Shibe Park, aerial view in 1929
Just for fun, on a slow offseason news day, check out a shot of Philadelphia's Shibe Park in 1929, from the air.
Here is yet another gem from @MLBcathedrals.
I like that they mentioned the rooftop seats in right field, because we've posted on those before. Here's the picture from the 1914 World Series -- or World's Series, as it was then known:
Those rooftop seats would go away, as after the 1934 season, owner Jack Shibe ordered the roof raised to almost 50 feet, frustrated by the rooftop owners piggybacking on his product (sound familiar, Chicago?). It would be called the "Spite Fence."
