Sportsman's Park - Field of Dreams

FIELD OF DREAMS: Jimmy Palermo grew up across the street from Sportsman's Park (circled above), the host to more Major League baseball games than any ballpark in history. Sportsman's park opened in 1902 and housed both the Cardinals and Browns for 34 years, 1920 - 1953.

  1. Jimmy Palermo is my father's uncle and I am researching the family ties to the Browns, Sportsman's Park and the St. Louis Sporting culture during that time. Uncle Jim is still with us but in very poor health and he is the last link to the historic time period. I would enjoy an opportunity to share any information that you have or can get your hands on.
