During the late 1940s, the Cotton Bowl, located in Dallas’ Fair Park, had been expanded to more than 75,000 seats, largely because of ticket demand for SMU football games during the Doak Walker era. Some Dallas people were boasting that the Cotton Bowl now held more people than Yankee Stadium. Perhaps that was what put the idea in Dick Burnett’s head to stage a baseball game there.
Great article, both for its richness of detail and the sheer novelty of what it describes. With all the staging of football and hockey games and what-not at baseball parks in recent years, I think it’s time that baseball was reciprocated. Time for a Rangers series in the Cotton Bowl!
