Default Tuesday nite TRIVIA.....Casey Stengel.....plus, show us some of Casey's cards

Casey Stengel was the 1st guy to hit a HR in two new ballparks. The 2nd instance was a dramatic HR in the World Series.

Name the ballparks ?

And, what was special about these two HR's ? ?

Furthermore, show us some of your Stengel cards. I'll start this show with some from my Stengel collection....

I don't think he hit the first HR at Yankee Stadium. The first WS HR maybe. Inside the park too, just like the first one at Ebbets Field.

I qualified that one instance was in World Series play.

Obviously, it was not in regular season play since Casey Stengel played for the NY Giants.

Anyhow, Peter and David are the Trivia Kings on this one.

So guys.....lets continue this thread by posting BB cards or memorabilia of Casey Stengel.

I'll throw one more question out there about stadiums....

When Candlestick Park opened in 1960, which Willie hit the first Giant homer in their new home park?

It must be a trick question, so Willie Kirkland.

My best baseball memories are of watching Casey's Yanks at old Old Yankee Stadium, meaning the pre-Steinbrenner fustercluck, back in the 1950s. I was a kid and he looked like he was older than sin; I never imagined that he had been young once and a ballplayer too. Supposedly Mickey Mantle was also surprised to learn he had played. "What do you think, I was born at 60?", Casey told him. Wonder if Mick ever saw his T210.



1923 NY Giants [am not 100% positive but I believe Casey is in second row second from left]




Photo dated 1949


1951 Hollywood Stars scorecard




Photo circa mid-1950s
