|Title||Aerial of Sick's Stadium looking southeast, Seattle, 1969 |
|Caption||Businessman Emil Sick bought the Seattle Indians baseball team in 1937 and renamed it the Seattle Rainiers. He also started work on a new steel and concrete baseball stadium in Rainier Valley, south of downtown. Sick's Seattle Stadium opened in June 1938. For years, fans crowded the stadium or watched from the slopes overlooking the outfield. By the 1960s, fewer people were going to the games. The stadium was torn down in the 1970s. This photo shows Rainier Avene South in the foreground and South McClelland Street in the upper right. |
