It was a palace, a jewel among ball parks both minor league and major. Silver Stadium set the standard from the time it opened on a rainy May day in 1929 right through the 1980’s. Rochester saw athletic drama played out on it’s broad, beautiful green stage. Welcome back the smells of white hots grilling, vendors shouting, the view from your favorite seat. Welcome back your Silver Memories.
Produced by WXXI, Silver Memories shares the history of Silver Baseball Stadium through interviews and anecdotal discussions on the stadium, the players, baseball, and its relation to the community itself.
