Connie Mack Stadium, known for the first two-thirds of its existence as Shibe Park, It was the first concrete and steel stadium in the Major Leagues. The stadium hosted two Major League Baseball All-Star Games, the first in 1943, marking the first time the game had been played at night, and in 1952, with that game holding the distinction of being the only All-Star contest shortened by rain (in this case, to five innings).By Tom Hannon
