League Park - Where great players made history


League Park is where a great deal of baseball history was made. From its beginning with Cy Young pitching the opening game, League Park served as a stage for baseball history to unfold.

The links below feature some of the players who made history at League Park. Many will be Cleveland hometown hero's. Others will have worn visitors jerseys. They all have one thing in common, they all helped make League Park America's Historic Balllpark. Additional players will be added during the coming months.
