One last look at Cooper Stadium

Cooper Stadium

We’re in the middle of our Target Field/Midway Stadium day-night doubleheader, but we thought you’d like to see this shot: the ongoing demolition and repurposing of Cooper Stadium, former home of the Columbus Clippers (Class AAA; International League).

As you’ll recall, Cooper Stadium, which opened in 1932, has sat empty since the Clippers moved to a new downtown ballpark, Huntington Park, in 2009. Even before the Clippers moved there was a proposal from William Schottenstein and his development firm to buy the property and convert it to a racetrack and car-research facility. (This photo is courtesy of William Schottenstein; thanks for sending it in!) The conversion is underway, obviously. Here’s what the ballpark looked like during the final Clippers season:
