Rest in Pieces: 50 Demolished Sports Stadiums We Love

36. Riverfront Stadium

Location: 201 East Joe Nuxhall Way, Cincinnati
Opened: 1970
Demolished: 2002
Current status: Entryway for the Great American Ballpark and the Reds Hall of Fame Museum
Nickname: N/A
Famed tenants: Cincinnati Bengals (NFL) (1970-1999), Cincinnati Reds (MLB) (1970-2002)

The Reds reached the World Series in the inaugural 1970 season at Riverfront and that seemed to be a good omen (they went on to win it three times later in the decade). The all-turf field was fast and unforgiving, and the Reds played it better than anyone. The Bengals on the other hand? Not so much.
