Sports have played a key role in Cleveland's history, confirming its status as a "major league town," and uniting a diverse population passionate about their city's teams. Venues where Cleveland's teams play have changed. Some have been torn down to make way for new stadiums, while others remain as relics of past glory. You may know the Browns, Cavaliers, and Indians, but the city also was home to the namesake for the Heisman Trophy, an amateur baseball game that purportedly drew 115,000 spectators (in 1915!), and a boxing champion with a neighborhood named for him. From Cleveland’s storied Czech Sokol gymnasts to its 1948 World Series, Cleveland sports truly are major.
