Explanatory notes

The table above shows the various names given to each permanent MLB stadium (since 1909) in chronological sequence, using initials or abbreviations where space is lacking. Names in use for one year or less are generally omitted, and the "standard" names are links to the respective stadium pages, triggering thumbnail-sized images of the stadium diagram when you roll the mouse over the name. The focus is on stadiums during the years in which they were used by MLB teams. Stadiums that remained in use (for football, etc.) after MLB teams left (e.g., RFK Stadium 1972-2004) are denoted by "transparent" backgrounds, matching that of the pale green page background. Names of temporary stadiums are shown (in parentheses) preceding the permanent ones: Memorial Coliseum in L.A., Seals Stadium in San Francisco, Wrigley Field in L.A., Colt Stadium in Houston, Mile High Stadium in Denver, and RFK Stadium in Washington. Sick's Stadium in Seattle (1969) is not represented at all, however, since the team relocated to Milwaukee after just one year. Finally, "anomolous" stadiums (such as the Tokyo Dome) that were used only for special games are excluded from this table.

# : Stadium was shared full-time by two teams for at least one year.
