Storied Stadiums: Baseball's History Through Its Ballparks

Storied Stadiums: Baseball's History Through Its Ballparks Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Critically acclaimed author Curt Smith fulfills the wildest dreams of baseball fans everywhere by traveling through space and time in a vast, entertaining volume that spares readers the price of gas, food, lodging (and admission) and puts them in a field box at every big-league park in the pastime's history—from Fenway and Ebbets to Camden Yards and PNC Park. Just as Smith's critically acclaimed Voices of the Game is the definitive history of baseball broadcasting, Storied Stadiums chronicles the stories, statistics, and characters behind all of baseball's venues. From park to park throughout the years, the great game's triumphs, tragedies, and comedies unfold in a kinetic prose as full of surprises as a wind-aided knuckleball. Illustrated with 36 color lithographs from the Bill Goff Collection, Storied Stadiums is at once a fact-filled almanac of the more than 125 major-league ballparks, past and present, and a paean to our national pastime.

Synopsis:

A paean to the structures that have lent hospitality to America's pastime is penned by the critically acclaimed author of "Voices of the Game". 32 color lithographs.
