Just in time for the Home Run Derby, 2K Sports has released 6 classic stadiums for baseball sim MLB 2K7 for purchase through the Xbox Live Marketplace.

We’re particularly excited about the inclusion of historic St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Browns stadium, Sportsman’s Park, as TheFeed thinks it’s just the thing that will finally get our grandfather to drop the jigsaw puzzles and buy a 360.

We’re looking forward to leisurely online matches with Grandpa TheFeed, whiling away the lazy summer afternoons playing nine and listening to Gramps wax nostalgic about watching Stan Musial at the Park and telling us for the 400th time about the day he sold a newspaper to Joe “Ducky” Medwick.

Xbox Live’s Major Nelson gives us the details on the stadiums after the jump:

Dash Details: The original Sportsman’s Park opened in 1881. It burned down twice between 1881 and 1900. The version you see here was built in 1901. It housed the St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Browns for portions of its existence. It was renamed Busch Stadium in 1953. It was demolished in 1966 after the Cardinals moved into the first new Busch Stadium. Forbes Field was built in 1909 and was home to the Pittsburgh Pirates until 1970. It was the first stadium to install foam-rubber crash pads on the outfield walls. It was demolished in 1971 after the Pirates moved to Three Rivers Stadium. The NFL’s Pittsburgh Steelers also played here.

Dash Details: Griffith Stadium was built in 1891. It burned down 20 years later and was rebuilt in 1911. Originally named National Park, it was renamed Griffith Stadium in 1920, after Washington Senators owner Clark Griffith. It housed the original Washington Senators from 1903 – 1960. They then moved to Minnesota and became the Twins. It then housed the second Washington Senators for one season, 1961. Shibe Park was built in 1909 and housed the Philadelphia Athletics from 1909 - 1954 and the Philadelphia Phillies from 1938 – 1970, as well as part of the 1927 season. The high wall in right field is known as the “spite wall” because it was built in 1935 to prevent neighbors across the street from watching games for free from their rooftops.

Price: 300 Points
Availability: All Xbox Live regions
Dash Details: Polo Grounds' oddly-shaped outfield fence, with extremely close walls down the line and one of the furthest walls ever in center, is the defining characteristic of this stadium. The Giants played in the Polo Grounds from 1911 – 1957, when they moved to San Francisco. They shared the stadium with the New York Yankees from 1913 – 1922. Crosley Field, originally called Redland Field, was built in 1912 and housed the Cincinnati Reds until 1970. The struggling Reds franchise was purchased by Powel Crosley in 1934 and the stadium was renamed after the man who was considered to have saved the franchise. Crosley Field is the site of the first ever major league night game, which was played in 1935.
