Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Baseball has changed dramatically since its early days. Today, the average ticket costs upwards of $20 and fans can feast on sushi from their luxurious air-conditioned seats. See how much Americas favorite pastime has changed, and how much its stayed the same in Ballparks Then & Now.

  • Crammed with history and facts, this unique city-by-city tour of Americas hallowed playing fields pairs archival images with modern photos of baseballs beloved landmarks like Union Grounds, Wrigley Field, Fenway Park, and the Negro Leagues Greenlee Field.

  • Includes all of the excitement of the 2006 season, including the winners of the 2006 World Series and all of the changes to ballparks around the U.S.

  • Celebrate glorious wooden palaces like Bostons Grand Pavilion and Sportsmans Park in St. Louis, constructed after baseball went professional in 1871.

  • Witness the ballpark renaissance of the 1990s and the dawning of multi-million dollar corporate naming rights.

  • With comprehensive data about each park (opening date, capacity, great moments), this new compact edition of best-selling Ballparks Then and Now is the perfect take-along size for fans to enjoy whether theyre sitting in the bleachers or luxury box.

Synopsis:

This book uses old photos to look at wonderful old baseball grounds full of nostalgia for fans, and shows their modern counterparts in contemporary photos. "Ballparks Then and Now" includes the current American and National League ball parks, as well as former league stadiums. 200 photos.
