SPORTSMAN'S PARK

289

St. Louis Brown Stockings (NA / MLB) (1875-1877) St. Louis Brown Stockings (AA) (1882-1893) St. Louis Browns (MLB) (1902-1953) St. Louis Cardinals (MLB) (1920-1966) St. Louis All Stars (NFL) (1923) St. Louis Gunners (NFL) (1934) St. Louis Cardinals (NFL) (1960-1965)

For 33 years, 1920–1953, Sportsman's Park was the home field of both the St. Louis Browns of the American League, and the St. Louis Cardinals of the National League, after which the Browns departed to become the modern-day Baltimore Orioles. The physical street address was 2911 North Grand Boulevard. St. Louis is by far the smallest market ever to support two major-league teams in the same sport at the same time.

This ballpark (by then known as Busch Stadium, but still commonly called Sportsman's Park) was also the home of the St. Louis Cardinals of the National Football League from 1960 until 1965, after the team's relocation from Chicago and before Busch Memorial Stadium opened its doors. In 1923, the stadium hosted St. Louis's first NFL team the St. Louis All Stars.
