    <p><p><p>As for Union Park, I agree with you as I have never seen the actual dimensions of the field listed and the Sandborn Map should make that possible. Let me know if you come up with something, or I'll give it a try (my son is pretty good with math, maybe he can help). </p></p></p>

    <p><p><p>As for the orientation of Municipal Stadium for baseball, you are absolutely correct. Home plate was located toward the middle of the oval on the west side and the left field porch was quite short. Here is the only picture I could find quickly. <a href="<a href="<a href="http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1195975-the-good-bad-and-positively-oddest-days-of-the-baltimore-orioles/page/11" rel="external nofollow">http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1195975-the-good-bad-and-positively-oddest-days-of-the-baltimore-orioles/page/11</a>" rel="external nofollow"><a href="http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1195975-the-good-bad-and-positively-oddest-days-of-the-baltimore-orioles/page/11" rel="external nofollow">http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1195975-the-good-bad-and-positively-oddest-days-of-the-baltimore-orioles/page/11</a></a>" rel="external nofollow"><a href="<a href="http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1195975-the-good-bad-and-positively-oddest-days-of-the-baltimore-orioles/page/11" rel="external nofollow">http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1195975-the-good-bad-and-positively-oddest-days-of-the-baltimore-orioles/page/11</a>" rel="external nofollow"><a href="http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1195975-the-good-bad-and-positively-oddest-days-of-the-baltimore-orioles/page/11" rel="external nofollow">http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1195975-the-good-bad-and-positively-oddest-days-of-the-baltimore-orioles/page/11</a></a></a> </p></p></p>

    <p><p><p>BTW, my name is David Stinson and, yes, I am an O's history guy. I suspect from your avatar so are you. Sorry I did not respond earlier, I just today noticed your message.</p></p></p>

    <p><p><p>There are several other photos of Union Park. James Bready's books "The Home Team" and "Baseball in Baltimore" both have additional images. The most notable is a picture taken from the outfield looking toward the grandstand. There are other pictures in the book, including shots of various players standing at different spots around the ballpark. Also, the Sports Legends Museum has a few player photos taken at Union Park. If you haven't already, please take a moment to read my blog on Union Park. Here is the link: <a href="<a href="<a href="http://deadballbaseball.com/?p=1343." rel="external nofollow">http://deadballbaseball.com/?p=1343.</a>" rel="external nofollow"><a href="http://deadballbaseball.com/?p=1343." rel="external nofollow">http://deadballbaseball.com/?p=1343.</a></a>" rel="external nofollow"><a href="<a href="http://deadballbaseball.com/?p=1343." rel="external nofollow">http://deadballbaseball.com/?p=1343.</a>" rel="external nofollow"><a href="http://deadballbaseball.com/?p=1343." rel="external nofollow">http://deadballbaseball.com/?p=1343.</a></a></a> It includes a very cool (IMO) image of a Sanborn Insurance Map which shows an outline of the ballpark and how it fit into the neighborhood.
