Just completed this painting of Mookie Betts on an 18X24 wood canvas. It is 1 of 1, no other like it! Available now at https://t.co/qJVqEHUf0V Betts is a 4X All-Star, 2X WS Champion and AL MVP. At 28, he's already a legend! @Alyssa_Milano #mookiebetts @TheVinScully #dodgers https://t.co/10yIH1LOuR

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. Thank you Steven Rice for posting this photo of the location of the stairway in relation to the ballpark. Other photo courtesy of Ben Hoexter https://t.co/omhEDFC9tU

A couple of weeks ago we posted a photo of Stars Park in St. Louis, built for the St. Louis Stars of the Negro Leagues in 1922 (home of Cool Papa Bell). Patrick Greenwood posted this fantastic photo showing then and now. Thank you to Erik Kreft for posting the other. https://t.co/RJuqmsSIiN

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

Never know what you're gonna unearth in the attic. I recently discovered these relics from the past and realize they are doing me no good hidden underneath tarps in a dark, forgotten corner of the house, so I'm making them all available to you now at https://t.co/qJVqEHUf0V https://t.co/dur8W7ZCHm

IMHO Busch Stadium II (closed in 2005) was the best of the so-called "cookie cutter" stadiums. It had a certain charm and character that many of the others lacked. Photo: Matthew Gililland https://t.co/USoXec6v1y

If you have ever been to a Brooklyn Nets game at Barclays you may have walked right by a great piece of baseball history without even knowing it. The flagpole outside the arena once stood at Ebbets Field. Photo: Tdorante and Stephen Johnston https://t.co/Bcdy9RLobk

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. Photos by Nick Copeland. https://t.co/5WmxJg0PsY

Ft Lauderdale Stadium opened in 1962 as the spring training home of Yankees and club's class D minor league team. Mantle, Ford, Berra and Jackson all dusted winter cobwebs off at the south Fla ballpark. It was razed in 2019. Photos taken near end by Marcus Villar & Fletcher Byrd. https://t.co/OJSXyJZL5y

The John T. Brush Stairway (Edgecombe Ave and 158th) is about all that's left of the fabled Polo Grounds, once home to Willie Mays and the World Champion New York Giants. Fans would use the stairway to descend Coogan's Bluff on their way into the ballpark. Photos: Ben Hoexter https://t.co/ZK3TFM2UDC
