Automotive entrepreneur Powel Crosley built his first radio in 1920, as an alternative to buying a high priced ($135) radio for his son. He then went on to produce several low priced, attractive models, and by 1922, Crosley was wealthy and his company was the largest radio manufacturer in the world. Crosley later bought the Cincinnati Reds, which is how the team's ballpark, Redland Field, came to be renamed Crosley Field.
