That's Abel Sanchez at Miami Stadium in 2001 before demolition. Spring training home of the Dodgers in the 50's and then long time spring home of the Orioles (1959-1990). This image was used by Sanchez to raise $2,500 for a historic marker on the site which is seen here in 2017. https://t.co/rP9KeJauS5
As mentioned previously, the John T. Brush Stairway (Edgecombe Ave and 158th/Manhattan) is about all that is left of the Polo Grounds.

1964 postcard of Philadelphia's Connie Mack Stadium. The upper deck, particularly in summer, was stifling hot. As can be seen here it was completely enclosed with zero ventilation. But hey, nothing an ice cold coke or beer couldn't fix, right? https://t.co/0pN3KLEjoJ

Fenway, August 28, 1950. From LB Follower Bob Wormington whose parents were there that day and the 27th... "The Sox fell behind (both days) 7-0 and 12-1 to Bob Feller and Bob Lemon but ended up winning both games. The 2nd day, my Dad wanted to leave but my Mum wouldn't let him." https://t.co/BLuOsJ0F8q
A ballpark that Ruth once played in (1923) still exists. Ainsworth Field/Erie, PA where Ruth’s traveling All-Stars once visited, not only stands, but is currently being used by a few local high schools. For the record, Ruth went 3-5 with a HR that day.
