In the fall of 1904, Edwin Kyle, an 1899 graduate of Texas A&M, was named president of the General Athletics Association.

Kyle wanted to secure and develop an athletic field to promote the school’s athletics. Kyle fenced off a section of the southeast corner of the A&M campus that had been assigned for agricultural use.

Using his own money, he purchased a covered grandstand and built wooden bleachers to raise the seating capacity to 500 people.

In 1921, the November game between the Texas A&M Aggies and the University of Texas at Kyle Field became the first college football game to offer a live, play-by-play broadcast.
