There were very few stadiums in the world that could compare with the very colorful and beautiful wooden ballpark that went by two different names… Clark Griffith Park and from 1971 onward, Jim Crockett Park. The beautiful wooden grandstand interwoven with steel beams was a marvel when it was completed and as memorable as it was… would also become its downfall. The history books are filled with sad stories of these grand wooden ballparks meeting their hellfire endings at the hands of a tossed match, a flicked cigarette or even by some very rotten children. This ballpark's finality would come via the latter.
