Pink Pony, ca. 1950s

Though the facade of Pink Pony's long-term location at Scottsdale Rd. and 1st St. drew on mid-century interpretations Western and Native-American motifs, the interior of the restaurant was a shrine of baseball memorabilia. It betrayed the fervent love of baseball that shaped the restaurant's identity. Sports Illustrated once even called the Pink Pony "the most popular hangout for baseball people in the civilized world, " and baseball writer Roger Angell called it "the best baseball restaurant in the land."
