THE BALLPARK BOOK:
A Journey Through the Fields of Baseball Magic

Author: Ron Smith and The Sporting News

The Sporting News takes readers on a sentimental journey through the past and present fields where major-league baseball is played. Fans learn the historical texture of each field, the very places where the game's greatest moments took place, and experience the ambience and feeling of each ballpark, old and new, as if they were sitting in the stands.

All of the nostalgic ballparks are here--from the Gone But Not Forgotten Era (Ebbets Field, Candlestick Park) to the New Wave Era (Camden Yards, Jacobs Field) and everything in between--49 past and present ballparks in all. Hundreds of full-color photos and illustrations make this an attractive addition to any baseball fan's collection.

This new edition includes these recently opened parks:

  • San Francisco's Pac Bell Park
  • Pittsburgh's PNC Park
  • Detroit's Comerica Park
  • Houston's Minute Maid Stadium
  • Seattle's Safeco Field
  • Milwaukee's Miller Park

From Miami to Seattle, from Boston to L.A., it's a trip around the country to where baseball is played!

$39.95 (hardcover)
