As someone who has been going to Philadelphia sports events my whole life, I still wonder what a Phillies or Eagles game might have been like at Veterans Stadium. When the stadium closed, I was only three years old, so I never would have been able to experience it like my family once did. Anon

Veterans Stadium was a multi-purpose stadium located at the northeast corner of Broad Street and Pattison Avenue in Philadelphia. The stadium opened in 1968 and was imploded in 2004
