Today I'm featuring a stadium I'm sad I never got to see a live game at.
It was such an institution at the corner of Michigan and Trumbull that the area was called "The Corner"
Of course, it's Tiger Stadium

I've been the recipient of a number of envelopes lately from a collector looking to pare down his collection. He's sent me a number of Jays and Expos.
I want to show a few cards I got today.

This time is a "What If" guy.

Today is Cleveland Stadium, also known as Lakefront of Municipal Stadium.
Municipal Stadium was built in 1931. The Cleveland Indians called this somewhat home from 1932-1933, then again from 1937-1993. The reason I say somewhat for the first few years is that they split between this monstrosity and League Park.

I got a few envelopes in the mail recently completely out of the blue. The name looks like James Taglia.
In there is a bunch of Jays and Expos he wanted to hand off to me because he was downsizing his collection. Told me about how he loved the Expos when they existed.
Well, one of the things that was present in the envelopes were these..

Today's stadium is one that's had multiple names, multiple renovations, many star players, yet not much success when it comes to postseason.
It's Anaheim Edison International Angel Stadium of Anaheim for the California Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
The stadium was built in 1966 for the Angels. Prior to this, the Angels played in Wrigley Field and Chavez Ravine Stadium.

I decided to dust off an old relic of the blog. I haven't done one of these in a while. Canadians in the Majors.
As before, this is a series that looks at a Canadian born player that I have in my collection.
Today's look is at Peter Hoy.
Peter Hoy was born June 29, 1956 in Brockville, Ontario. He went to school at LeMoyne College and played in the Cape Cod League for the Chatham A's. He was drafted in 1988 by the Red Sox in the 33rd round. He briefly made the Majors in 1992 with the Boston Red Sox.

I missed the post yesterday.
Between visits from a friend, lack of sleep, and still generally feeling like crap, I missed posting my Signature Saturday post yesterday.
Never fear, dear reader.. Signature Saturday on a Sunday is here!

This week has been a bit of a rough one.. I almost skipped doing this today because I basically did not want to get out of bed or do anything today.. In fact I'm typing this wanting to go to bed for the night.
This may not be as in depth as last week's. I apologize.
This week is Exhibition Stadium.. The Mistake By the Lake. The only MLB park to have covered bleachers but no covered seats behind the plate. Considered to be one of the worst places MLB has played baseball in... And quoted as being the worst in sports by a TEAM EXECUTIVE FOR THE JAYS....
