I love the Jake… but this is what I think about when I think “ballpark”. Cleveland Stadium, commonly known as Municipal Stadium or Lakefront Stadium, was a multi-purpose stadium built to accommodate both baseball and football. The stadium opened in 1931 and was a four-time host of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, one of the host venues of the 1948 and 1954 World Series, and the site of the original Dawg Pound, Red Right 88, and The Drive.

If there is one thing that Cleveland is synonymous with its the Cleveland Browns. No matter how good (not too often in recent years) or bad (all too often in recent years) our Browns are, the fans come to each and every game in droves. We support our team through think and thin. Through good and bad draft picks, through endless quarterback controversies and coaching changes the fans continue to file into Cleveland Browns Stadium.
This pic was snapped on the way out of this past season’s home opener. This sign always makes me smile as I love it when an organization recognizes it’s fans. It’s a small token, but for THIS fan, it goes a long way.
