With nowhere else to turn, the Seattle Indians moved to ugly Civic Stadium a ballpark which had no infield or outfield grass and whose dirt was harder than concrete. They would need to remain there for 7 whole years until Emil Sick took over the ballclub and finally brought them back home to Dugdale Park in 1938. Sick had taken Dugdale's old infield and built a beautiful (and non-burnable) concrete and steel stadium around it which he dubbed Sicks Seattle Stadium. They would remain there, under their previous name of the Seattle Rainiers until the Seattle Pilots of the American League took over the ballpark in 1969.
