Saw a lot of games there in the 50s and I don't think I would have called it a dump back then. One thing PK Wrigley did was to spend money on yearly improvements, If the Comiskey's had PK's money the Baseball Palace might still be with us.
Saw a game at Connie Mack Stadium in 67, now that place was a dump.
