Raise Your Hand if You Remember the Dallas Submarines
I remember Dad taking me a high-school football game to old P.C. Cobb Stadium, and I saw the Dallas/Fort Worth Spurs play minor-league baseball at Turnpike Stadium.
P.C. Cobb is now the Infomart. Turnpike Stadium is a grassy hill out beyond Rangers Ballpark. And the Submarines?
Thanks to a cool site that I just spent time and money on -- throwbackmax.com -- the 1920s baseball team lives on. At least their shirts do.
The Subs, as I'm sure they were called, played in the Texas League before the Great Depression.
