From its opening on August 18, 1915 to the sudden departure of the Boston Braves to Milwaukee just weeks before the start of the 1953 baseball season, Braves Field was home to Boston’s National League baseball club. The ballpark hosted many other events, from college and NFL football to major-league soccer to championship boxing, and the facility lives on as Boston University’s Nickerson Field. Many of the most memorable moments to occur in Braves Field history are portrayed here, providing a look back at a ballpark often overlooked even in Boston today.
