FUN WITH GOOGLE MAPS- MAJOR LEAGUE BALLPARKS AL CENTRAL

Home of the 2005 World Series Champions, US Cellular Field is the new home to the White Sox after they moved there from the giant Comiskey Park, which housed the Sox for over 50 years. Old Comiskey saw some of baseball's most memorable moments during its day, including the 1919 'Black Sox' scandal and 1979's Disco Demolition Night. Disco Demolition Night Google map: CLEVELAND INDIANS, Jacob's Field
Jacob's Field is a lush ballpark that opened in 1994. The previous Indian's field was Cleveland municipal Stadium which had all the appeal of a trainyard. The Indian's old digs can be seen in the movie 'Major League', which is Bob Uecker's finest role. In the movie, though, most of the interior scenes were shot using the old Milwaukee stadium, with all the exterior shots being from Cleveland's stadium. Major League Google map: DETROIT TIGERS, Comerica Park Comerica Park is one of the newest parks in the AL for one of the oldest teams. Detroit is home to Ty Cobb, Sparky Anderson, Lou Whitaker, and Magnum P.I. Google map: KANSAS CITY ROYALS, Kauffman Stadium George Brett helped make Kauffman Stadium famous with his attempt to bat .400 in 1980. However, even with that, most people will remember the famous 'Pine-tar' game in which Brett charged the ump in a critical game after his homerun was taken away for an illegal bat. The Royals were also home to one of the best 2 sport players in Bo Jackson.
Google map: MINNESOTA TWINS, Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome The Twin's were home to the late, great Kirby Puckett who passed away this year. During his time on the field, the Twin's visited the World Series and gave the Metrodome plenty of TV exposure. Remember the Hefty Bag-looking outfield walls? Yuck!
