Mightily, in a Full House cast reunion playing pickup soccer for charity way.

Surprised no one mentioned the Red Sox-Dodgers preseason game that took place at LA Memorial Coliseum in 2008, with supposedly the largest crowd to ever see an MLB game (115,301).

I went to that game and while I don't remember a whole lot, I do remember how big and weird it was. It's hard to tell in this photo, but because the left field wall was so close (Reuters tells me that it was 201 feet and that only one ball went over the fence there), the teams ended up playing with five infielders.

Oklahoma City proved to be more right for the Hornets than New Orleans did.

From 1975-1995, the Boston Celtics would play up to 5 home games a year at the Hartford Civic Center.

Couldn't find a good image, but here's a YouTube link from 1985 during Michael Jordan's rookie season with Chicago:

On the topic of soccer at MLB stadiums, Miller Park hosted Swansea City and Chivas in 2014 and Newcastle and Atlas in 2015.

I don't watch soccer, so I have no clue which this one is:

- It may be video, but here are the Golden State Warriors in action @ San Jose Arena (now the SAP Center) in 1997, when the now-Oracle Arena was undergoing renovation.

Indians playing at Miller Park in 2007 due to snow at Progressive:

Angels playing at Dodger Stadium from 1962-1965, could not find a photo.

Fantasy turned reality, sorta. Anyone remember the Major League movies? The first one was shot at the old Milwaukee County Stadium, but it was based on the Indians.

And Major League II (underrated, by the way) was shot at Camden Yards.

1985: SMU hosts Texas at Texas Stadium

2011: Cal hosts Fresno State at Candlestick

We actually played an entire season at AT&T Park due to stadium renovations at Memorial Stadium:

Early games had the diamond, later it was barely visible

This was how Pac Bell was configured for the XFL's San Francisco Demons games. I thought it looked really cool at night for football.

The Brewers in County Line Stadium wearing their current uniforms look weird. They were suppose to coincide with miller park opening but it got pushed to 2001 because of an accident.

The Phillies are another team that changed their uniform for the new new veterans stadium for 1970, but that got delayed to 1971, so they ended up wearing these for the last season at connie mack stadium.

I was there that night. It was a double header: Real Madrid v. Everton and Juventus v. L.A.Galaxy in the International Champions Cup.

I can't find pics of it but the Rays played a home series at Disney's Wild World Of Sports in 2008, and the Lightning also played a couple home games at the Orlando Arena. Of course, the Lightning used to call the Trop (known then as Thunderdome) home.

The Lightning played their first season (1992-93) in the tiny-as-hell 11,000 seat Fairgrounds Expo Hall.

Somebody's forgetting...

[Hornets in OKC pics]

I'll do you one better: because the moving of the Hornets to OKC in 2006 had to be done so quickly, they actually had to play one game in Norman, OK because of a Bon Jovi concert that had been previously scheduled in Oklahoma City.

What if we create a conjoined spin-off thread of "Players in the wrong uniforms of teams that play in the wrong stadiums".....double whammy.

That's awesome..looks like a high school state championship game. Also, very odd that only the Canada flag is up...unless the American is on the opposite wall, but they're normally somewhat side by side.
