The outfield of Crosley Field underwent many changes throughout the years. Larry Klug shows us through the Tim Jefferies collection that on opening day in 1950, centerfield was dominated by a very short fence and a very large warehouse building, that for years was one of the trademarks of Crosley Field (and perhaps where Camden Yards got some inspiration)
