Description

Baseball fans may argue over the all-time best pitchers, worst plays in history, or which team will win the pennant, but everyone can agree that the baseball stadium holds a sacred place in American cultural life. In this breathtakingly comprehensive tour of ballparks past and present, readers can enjoy an intimate view of every major league park (more than sixty-five in all): cozy Wrigley Field, magnificent Dodger Stadium, historic Fenway Park, newcomer Miller Park, and much more. Packed with nearly a thousand breathtaking photos that zoom right into the action, this massive tome is a box seat for baseball's evolution from the crude grounds of the 1890s to the opulent new stadiums opened in New York in 2009.
