Greetings denizens of Hogs Haven, Ben Folsom from The Curly R here, did you know RFK Stadium, home to thefor 36 years, turned 50 this week? You probably did not, there was little coverage of the milestone.
We have the answer to that. Starting today and running all through the bye week, Curly R, in partnership with Hogs Haven, begins an eight part series on the history of this iconic venue, how it came to be, how it was almost taken from us, how it got its name and the team's role in the Civil Rights struggles of the 1960s.
I hope you enjoy it, fifteen years since the team stopped playing there, it is time to give RFK its due.
