Balboa Stadium (C17788)


Product Description

"Where's Waldo?"  Balboa Stadium can be easily seen in the upper right.



Balboa Stadium witnessed the Chargers' glory years, which featured such players as John Hadl, Lance Alworth and Ernie Ladd, and hosted the 1961, 1963, and 1965 American Football League championship games, as well as the 1961, 1962, and 1963 AFL All-Star games.

The stadium also hosted local amateur and professional baseball contests in the period prior to the establishment of the Pacific Coast League Padres in 1936.

Today the stadium has been altered to have a much smaller seating capacity than at the time it housed the Chargers, and most of its distinguishing architectural features have been removed. The remaining seating is made up of simple concrete bleachers, which also form the walls of the canyon the field is built in. The stadium is home to the San Diego Thunder Semi-pro football team, San Diego Pumitas minor league soccer club of the National Premier Soccer League.
