This undated image shows an aerial view of a baseball game at Veterans Stadium, located at Broad Street & Pattison Avenue.  Built in 1971, to replace Connie Mack Stadium (previously called Shibe Park), it primarily hosted the Philadelphia Phillies and the Philadelphia Eagles games, but also other sports events, concerts, and civic events.  It was demolished in 2004, and the site became a parking lot for its replacement next door, Citizens Bank Park.
