A new steel and concrete stadium, home to the American League baseball team the Philadelphia Athletics, opened to fans on April 12, 1909. Situated on ground bounded by what are now West Lehigh Avenue, North 20th Street, West Somerset Street, and North 21st Street, Shibe Park was constructed in less than year as the Athletics desperately needed a new place to play. At the time, they were playing in Columbia Park, a wood park that was quickly deteriorating, located in the city's Brewerytown neighborhood.

Bailey was educated entirely in its schools and universities.  Graduating from the Philadelphia High School for Girls in 1916, Bailey hoped that a scholarship to Radcliffe College would serve as the springboard to a successful writing career.  Bailey majored in education because it was the only area of concentration open to full-time female students at the university.  In 1931 she earned a masters degree in Education.
