In November, 1928, Cleveland voters passed (by 112,448 to 76,975, a 59% passage rate with 55% needed to pass) "a $2.5 million levy for a fireproof stadium on the Lakefront".[1] Built under the watch of city managers William R. Hopkins and Daniel E. Morgan, it was designed by the architecture firm of Walker and Weeks and Osborn Engineering, and featured an early use of structural aluminum. The stadium was dedicated on July 1, 1931, and hosted a boxing match for the World Heavyweight Championship between Max Schmeling and Young Stribling two days later.

While some have said the stadium was built in a failed bid to attract the 1932 Summer Olympics, which went to Los Angeles, that is false. The 1932 Games were already awarded to Los Angeles long before ground was broken on the stadium.[2] The Stadium was built for football and for the Cleveland Indians, who played their first game there on July 1, 1932, losing to the Philadelphia Athletics' great pitcher Lefty Grove 1-0 while attracting a then major league record crowd of 80,184.[3] The Indians played all their games at the stadium from the middle of the 1932 season through 1933. However, players and fans complained about the huge outfield and in 1934, the Indians moved most of their games back to their old home, League Park. The 1932 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the X Olympiad, were held in 1932 in Los Angeles, California, United States. ...

However, in 1936, the Indians began playing Sunday and holiday games at Municipal during the summer months. Beginning in 1938, they also played selected important games there. Starting in 1939, they played night games there as well (since League Park didn't have lights). By 1940, the Indians played most of their home slate at Municipal, abandoning League Park entirely after the 1946 season. They played there until the end of the 1993 season, when they moved to Jacobs Field.[4] The following are the baseball events of the year 1946 throughout the world. ... // This year in baseball Events January - Reggie Jackson is elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Baseball Writers Association of America, receiving 94% of the vote. ...

The stadium's original baseball playing field was so large that an inner fence was constructed in 1947 to cut down the size of the spacious outfield. Even after it was put in, the distances to the bleachers remained visible for many years; it was 470 feet from home plate to the bleachers in straightaway center field. No player ever hit a home run into the center field bleachers. Ted Williams hit the only inside-the-park home run of his career at Cleveland Stadium before the inner fence was installed. According to his own autobiography, Veeck - As in Wreck, Indians' owner Bill Veeck would move the fence in or out, varying by as much as 15 feet, depending on how it would favor the Indians, a practice that ended when the American League specifically legislated against moving fences during the course of a given season.

Like some other facilities built before warning tracks became standard, the stadium had an earth berm in front of the center field wall. After the inner fence was installed, the berm was still visible during football season. The bottom of the picture shows part of the outfield warning track at AT&T Park. ...


The facility, located just south of Lake Erie, was known for the biting cold winds that would blow into the stadium in winter and, for that matter, during much of the spring and fall. Hot summer nights would compensate by its lights attracting swarms of midges and mayflies. Game 2 of the 2007 American League Division Series, in Jacobs Field on October 5, 2007, brought back memories of the old stadium, as swarms of midges (mischaracterized by the television announcers as Canadian Soldiers) infested the field.

In 1954 the Indians again won the American League pennant, winning a then-record 111 games, under manager Al Lopez and behind an outstanding pitching staff led by Bob Lemon. They were swept, however, by the New York Giants in the World Series. On four separate occasions, it hosted the 1935, 1954, 1963 and 1981 All-Star Games.

The Stadium was an economic drain on the City of Cleveland, which owned it and originally operated it. In the mid 1970s the Browns owner Art Modell agreed to lease the facility for $1.00 per year. Modell's company, Stadium Corporation, assumed the expenses of operations from the City and invested in improvements, including then new electronic scoreboards and luxury suites. The suites and scoreboard advertising were quite lucrative for Modell and generated substantial revenue for him. Modell refused to share the suite revenue with the Indians baseball team, even though quite a bit of the revenues were generated during baseball games. Eventually the Indians prevailed upon the local governments and voters and convinced them to build them their own facility where they would control the suite revenue. Modell, believing that his revenues were not endangered, refused to participate in the Gateway Project that built Jacobs Field for the Indians and Gund Arena for the Cavs. Modell's assumptions proved incorrect and the suite revenues declined when the Indians moved from the stadium to Jacobs Field in 1994. The following year, Modell decided to move the football team to Baltimore, Maryland after the 1995 season. Arthur B. Modell (born June 23, 1925, Brooklyn, New York) is a former National Football League team owner of the Cleveland Browns from 1961-1995 and the Baltimore Ravens from 1996-2004. ...

The 1995 NFL season was the 76th regular season of the National Football League. ...


Modell's move of the Browns breached the team's lease and so the City of Cleveland sued. After the suit was settled the Stadium was demolished the next year and the pieces were literally taken across the street and dumped in the lake, so as to create an artificial reef for fisherman and divers. Construction in place of an artificial reef from hollow tile blocks Ship about to be scuttled to act as an Artificial Reef An artificial reef is a man-made, underwater structure, typically built for the purpose of promoting marine life in areas of generally featureless bottom. ...
