Product Description

SICK'S STADIUM

KV1730

ULTRA TOUGH CHROME!!!

Sick's Stadium first opened on June 15, 1938 as the home field of the Pacific Coast League's Seattle Rainiers (the renamed Seattle Indians). The Rainiers played at the Stadium through 1964, after which they were renamed the Seattle Angels, but continued to play at Sick's through 1968. In 1946, the stadium was briefly the home of the Seattle Steelheads of the short-lived West Coast Baseball Association Negro League, who played at the stadium while the Rainiers were on the road.

On April 11, 1969, Major League Baseball came to Seattle with the American League expansion Seattle Pilots debuting at Sick's Stadium. Seattle had been mentioned several times as a prospective major league city. Unfortunately the team moved to Milwaukee for the 1970 season and became the Milwaukee Brewers.

From 1972 to 1976, a Class A Seattle Rainiers team played at Sick's to sparse audiences. In 1977, Major League Baseball returned to Seattle with the expansion Seattle Mariners, but not to Sick's Stadium; rather, to the Kingdome.
