I might be wrong about this, but I don't think there is a flag on the roof for 1906. I would think they would have a WS flag for 1906 next to the 1917. Anyone know why there isn't one?

There are no flags on the roof. They are on the metal work in the outfield.

i actually posted this exact same thread a couple of months ago and the only response i got was "who cares im just wondering where the 2005 flag will go"

im still wondering the same thing about the 1906 flag, however

I was wondering the same thing. They also don't have a 1917 American League Champions banner or a 1906 American League champions banner.

i think they only do it as to how far the team makes it into the playoffs, thus only one flag for the 1917 season as oppose to having a WS flag and an AL champs flag

There are, well, at least there were, World Champ flags on the the flagpoles in left field, IIRC, for 1906 and 1917.

Maybe 100 years is all you get to celebrate. :bandance:

In that case, it should still be there.

The flag poles that held the '01 AL flag and '06 World Champ flags were mounted on the ironwork that was removed to build the fundamentals deck. It appears they have not gotten around to relocating those poles yet.
