Recognize Brookside Stadium as a Historic Landmark

Brookside Stadium is a place where history was made, a place where nature built a stadium and where on one day in October 1915, a place where more than 110,000 baseball fans graced its hillsides for the World Amateur Championship, the largest attendance in amateur sports history. Brookside Stadium is a lost legend among America's endangered ballparks. Without obtaining historical designation, it risks falling into further disprepair and neglect, or worse only a distant memory of the past. Multiple attempts have been made to see this site nominated as a Historic Landmark, but all have been erroneously denied. Visit http://brooksidestadium.webs.com/ for additional information.
