AtlantaPonce de Leon Park
Location: Atlanta, GA.
The original Ponce de Leon Ball Park opened on May 23, 1907. Costing $60,000 to build, the wooden stadium could accommodate about 9,000 fans.
On Sept. 9, 1923, the wooden stadium burned to the ground, but a wealthy concessionaire named R. J. Spiller came to the rescue. Using $250,000 of his own money, Spiller rebuilt the park on a nearby piece of Ponce de Leon property across from a Sears & Roebuck warehouse building. The stadium was used by the white Atlanta Crackers and the Negro Leagues Altanta Black Crackers.
