Army-Navy at sites known for baseball

Today marks the 120th Army-Navy Game, with Navy holding a 60-52-7 series lead.

Sites that housed baseball have hosted 30 games, though none since Veterans Stadium in 2001.

Army has fared well, going 20-8-2 (we're including Baltimore's Municipal Stadium, later rebuilt as Memorial Stadium.)

The breakdown:

Philadelphia's Veterans Stadium: 17 games between 1980 and 2001 (Army 11-5-1)

New York's Polo Grounds (pictured): 9 games between 1913 and 1927 (Army 5-3-1)

New York's Yankee Stadium: 1930 and 1931 (Army 2-0)

Baltimore's Municipal Stadium: 1924 and 1944 (Army 2-0)

Fenway Park and the current Yankee Stadium made bids to host the game in recent years, however, the game will stay at larger football venues through at least 2022.

Enjoy the game, whether it's "GO Army" or "GO Navy" in your household!
