It was the first of its kind. Up until 1909, every Major and Minor League ballpark had been built of wooden construction. Every one of those 19th century ballparks either burned to the ground or decayed into the earth. Forbes Field became the first Major League ballpark to be built of brick and steel. Built to last for 75 to 100 years. Unlike Wrigley Field and Fenway Park, sadly it wouldn't make it. It would be torn down for one of those doughnut stadium "things". It had just as much charisma as the best ballparks of its day. Once home to Pie Traynor, Ralph Kiner, Honus Wagner, the "Poison Brothers" and Roberto Clemente, Forbes Field was once... one of the greats.
