|The Sports Stadium started life as an indoor salt water swimming facility. While it intially proved quite popular, a succession of warm summers caused a decline in popularity as the public preferred outdoor ocean bathing.

After the "King Bat" days, Red found work in American with the Ice Capades during the immediate pre-world war two era. Here is a youtube video of Red from the 1941 show.
