Municipal Stadium Kansas City

Municipal Stadium was originally built as Muehlebach Field in 1925 for the minor-league Blues, costing $400,000. The stadium consisted of a single-decked, mostly covered, grandstand extending from the right field foul pole down around most of the left field line. When the New York Yankees bought the Blues for their farm system in 1937, the stadium was renamed Ruppert Field in honor of the Yankees owner, Col. Jacob Ruppert. Ruppert died two years later, and the stadium was renamed Blues Stadium in 1943.
