  Stadium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A modern stadium (plural stadiums or stadia in English) is a place, or venue, for (mostly) outdoor sports, concerts or other events, consisting of a field or stage partly or completely surrounded by a structure designed to allow spectators to stand or sit and view the event.
The term "stadium" has also often been used for baseball parks, especially since the construction of Yankee Stadium in 1923, which had a running track initially, as a "true" stadium would, and was also used for football.
Yankee Stadium, for example, was built on a triangular city block in The Bronx, New York City.

 Yankee Stadium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It was the first baseball park to be labeled a "Stadium" rather than a "Field," a "Park," or a "Grounds," and it conformed to the usage of the term in ancient Greece, where a stadium was a foot-race arena.
Yankee Stadium favors left-handed batters because of a shorter right-field fence, which was once called "Ruthville" and is now known as "the short porch", although the field has become much more symmetric over the years.
Knowing the Stadium would close in the middle (for football) of the 1973 season, and that the stadium they had arranged to build in New Jersey (to be named Giants Stadium) would not open until 1976,the team secured temporary home fields for the remainder of 1973 and all of 1974 and 1975.

 Would a Publicly Financed Baseball Stadium Pay Off for DC?, 6/9/03
Because the stadium is likely to be placed in a “principal growth area” of the city, it would displace other economic activity that could result in new tax revenues for the city.
Because much of the revenue generated by the stadium would not be "new" but simply a change in the place where revenue is collected, the stadium is unlikely to add to the District's economy, it also is unlikely to increase the city's tax collections significantly.
By contrast, if a stadium were built with private funds, and the District did not have the obligation of paying off the construction costs, all of the taxes generated at the baseball stadium would flow into the District’s general fund and would be available to support basic services.
