The site boasts significant history beyond the majors, including the National Football League, Negro League baseball, college football and boxing, and has experienced an uncanny multitude of amazing events and people, although that history has heretofore gone largely unrecognized.

Perhaps the most unique feature of the site is that is has survived to this day as a baseball grounds, with renovations of the site scheduled to begin in the spring of 2012.
