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.
