Sometimes I think back to the County Stadium days in Milwaukee, which mostly took place before I was born and while I was a kid. County Stadium reached its demise as I became an adult and I never really got to say goodbye to the old house. I was off at university in another state and I kind of forgot about and neglected County Stadium as it went unwillingly into that good night. It didn’t help my awareness of the Stadium’s end that the late 90’s represented some pretty bad baseball for the local nine. But in hindsight, I should’ve observed County’s passing better. Certainly the park wasn’t as aesthetically glorious in its elder days as it was when it opened in 1953. County Stadium always seemed rather mundane compared to many MLB parks, but I guess you don’t appreciate what you got 'til it’s gone.
I remember going to ball games with my dad and brothers, seeing the bright field and dingy corrugated steel. I remember randomly attending games during my high school day
