There are a lot of identical parks in the current set. Why not cut some of those existing parks out and add all the new ones?

Cleveland Stadium should be "League Park", I believe.

What leads you to say it's League Park over Cleveland Stadium, RB?

True. In the 1930s, they played "big" dates (Sunday doubleheaders, holidays, etc) and "big" teams in Cleveland Stadium to take advantage of the extra seating, playing weekday games in League Park. I would wager that it IS Cleveland Stadium that we have here.

I am in the process of doing research and a Wikipedia page on a ballpark called Suburban Oval in the Kensington/Parkville section of Brooklyn. Situated in the block formed by McDonald Ave (Gravesend Ave at that time), Cortelyou Rd., East 2nd St., and Ditmas Ave., this field had its heyday during the dead ball era.

The Brooklyn Supurbas -- featuring Casey Stengel, Zack Wheat, Nap Rucker and Ed Ruelbach -- played some games at Suburban Oval between 1910 and 1913. Additionally, I have newspaper reports of Negro League play there during the early part of the century.

The field fell into disuse once the live ball began to be the standard. Knowing this neighborhood, right field fences,I would estimate to be about 230 ft. at most: fine for a game with a dead ball, but not the new live ball of the post 1920 period.

I would like to one day gather enough information about the dimensions of the park and more of its history to submit it to Strat for inclusion in an upcoming ATG version.
