We recently discussed the original home of Connie Mack’s Philadelphia Athletics in Brewerytown, but what about the guys who helped make baseball a profession? Those guys played at the Jefferson Street Grounds. The video posted here shows you the western portion of the original park, the remainder of which is now home to a school. It is believed that the first National League game was played there in 1876 between the Athletics and the Boston Red Stockings.
