Alamo Stadium in San Antonio was completed in 1940 and is known as “The Rockpile” due to its primarily limestone construction. According to Wikipedia, it constructed on the site of an abandoned rock quarry for $477,000. It’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places and several years ago underwent a $35 million renovation.
The horseshoe-shaped stadium currently seats 18,500, making it one of the biggest stadiums in the Lone Star State.
On September 20, 1940, Alamo Stadium opened with a doubleheader. Corpus Christi beat Jefferson 14-0 in the first game, while Brackenridge topped Houston Reagan 19-2 in the second game.
