Cleveland greets reopening of historic ballpark

This Thursday, Aug. 21, 2014 photo shows an entrance to League Park in Cleveland. The city of Cleveland has invested $6.3 million in restoring the old site of League Park, a historic site where the Cleveland Indians clinched its 1920 World Series title, Babe Ruth hit his 500th home run and where Joe DiMaggio extended his hitting streak to 56 games. Not much of the old ballbark, where Cy Young threw the first pitch in 1891 remains, but the new park will host high school and youth games on its all-turf field and will pay homage to the greats who once played there.

The city has spent $6.3 million to turn an empty, trash-strewn field into a handsome ballpark with a playing surface of all-weather field turf.
