Crosley has the distinction of being the first major-league park with lights for playing night games. The "Findlay and Western" intersection was the home field of the Reds from 1884 until mid-season 1970, when the team moved to Riverfront Stadium. The location of the diamond and consequently the main grandstand seating area was shifted several times during the 86½ seasons that the Reds played at the site. Three different parks stood there: 1884–1901: League Park1902–1911: Palace of the Fans1912–1970: Redland Field, renamed Crosley Field in 1934 (en)
