The Baker Bowl is noted for its highly rectangular shape and its small field area. Because of its small size it was often derided as the "Cigar box" or "band box". The Philadelphia Phillies largely neglected the maintenance of the park, and in 1903 a section of the upper deck collapsed during a game and 11 fans died. Again in 1927, the upper deck collapsed, this time with no fatalities.
Some anomalies of this park include the train tunnel under deep center field that caused a bulge in the field, and the on-again-off-again bleachers in front of the center-field clubhouse.
