Sears & Ponce De Leon Park
The Atlanta Crackers Stadium

A few years ago I was making a healthcare marketing call at a senior care business very near Sears. While waiting to see the manager, I noticed historical photos of Atlanta on the wall. I commented, "Oh, these are wonderful pictures. It reminds me of when I went with my father to ball games to see the Crackers play across from Sears!"

A young secretary replied, in an arrogant tone, "There was never a ball park in this area. If there was, I would certainly know. I have lived here ALL MY LIFE.!" She seemed to be about 25 years of age!
