Ballparks built on or near
the site of their predecessors
Home page >> Baseball home page >> Stadium comparisons >> Stadium proximity Last updated:
Over the years, many baseball stadiums have been built right next to the stadiums which they replaced, and in two cases (St. Louis and Cincinnati) the two successive stadiums "overlapped" each other. In other cases, stadiums were built just a few blocks from their predecessors. This page depicts all such cases of close stadium proximity by means of special dual-thumbnail images in which the individual diagrams have been rotated so that north is always straight up. To see the stadium images, roll the mouse cursor over the city names. (For New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles, there are separate thumbnail images for the American League and National League teams, depending on which part of the city it is.) To go to the page of that city's current stadium, click on the city name, or portion thereof.
For cities in which there was no close stadium proximity, rolling over the city names will display a standard thumbnail image of the current stadium, along with a text box showing its name, year of origin, and the previous MLB stadium (if any), and the distance in miles between the two. In a few cases, the name of and distance to the stadium one more generation back is shown as well. Eventually, this page will provide such information for all major league stadiums since the early 20th Century.
