Sportsman's Park, Cicero, IL, January 4th, 2009
Well, finally it became a reality. The City of Cicero finally got things straightened out as to how the shuttered Sportsman's property was going to be used, and final demolition started. The picture above is the last day before the wrecking ball started in on the grandstand.
The Chicago Tribune had a little photo spread as demolition started.
A local photographer got in and took some nice pictures just before demolition.
Goodbye Sportsman's, hello much needed new strip mall!
