Come on a journey as we explore the extraordinary events that helped to build the iconic Adelaide Oval.

Find out who bowled a ball through WG Graces' beard, how the waterlogged pitch of 1923 could not stop North Adelaide's victory, how Sir Donald Bradman stood up to Patrick Patterson and other fascinating insights into the quirks and oddities of Adelaide Oval.
