Memorial Stadium 1950 - 2002

Memorial Stadium was originally known as Venable Stadium back in 1944. A sign above the entrance, dedicated in 1954, had the following inscription:

 

"Dedicated as a memorial to all who so valiantly fought in the world wars with eternal gratitude to those who made the supreme sacrifice to preserve equality and freedom throughout the world – time will not dim the glory of their deeds."
