Fenway. Wrigley. Ebbets Field. These are the real fields of dreams. Sporting News senior editor Ron Smith pays tribute to 46 current and former major league ballparks in The Ballpark Book. Smith divides the parks into "Classics" (Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, and Yankee Stadium), the "Middle Ages" (including Anaheim Stadium, Oakland Coliseum, and Jack Murphy Stadium), the "Turf Era" (such as Riverfront Stadium, Three Rivers Stadium, and Busch Stadium), the "Dome Era" (the Metrodome, Olympic Stadium, and the SkyDome), and the "New Wave Era" (including Camden Yards, Coors Field, and New Comiskey Park). The "Gone, but Not Forgotten" fields are described in reverent, nostalgic tones--suitable for Tiger Stadium and the Polo Grounds, though few will miss the Kingdome and the Stick. Each park is profiled in detail, with great photographs of historic moments. Smith points out unique features, such as the swimming pool in the outfield at Bank One Ballpark, or the single red seat, high up in the outfield bleachers, marking the spot where Ted Williams hit the longest homer in Fenway history (502 feet).

Schoolboy Rowe once said, "Ballparks are individuals to me, not just so much stone, concrete, and steel." The Ballpark Book will help you get to know some of these fine individuals. --M. Stein

Der Verlag über das Buch

What's behind The Ballpark Book
Thanks for taking the time to look into our book. If you're a fan of baseball, if you're a fan of major league ballparks, if you're a fan who - like me - is kicking himself for not getting to a game at Tiger Stadium before it closed, if you're a fan who wishes he could have seen a game in Ebbets Field or Crosley Field, this book is done for you.

Baseball fans don't just remember great players and plays, they remember the great places that served as stages for those people and circumstances. Those great places - those stadiums, those ballparks, those fields - hold unique smells and sounds, unique sights and feels, unique experiences for each and every fan.

Re-creating those unique features, re-igniting those feelings and sensory experiences is what’s behind The Ballpark Book. We want to take you to Fenway and Wrigley and Camden Yards. We want to take you to Ebbets and Shibe and Griffith and Old Comiskey and Forbes.

The year 1999 marked the end of four national baseball treasures - Detroit’s Tiger Stadium, Houston’s Astrodome, 3 Com Park (nee Candlestick Park) in San Francisco and Seattle's Kingdome (maybe not as treasured as the other three but, yes, a treasure nonetheless) - The Sporting News relives the experience, relives the great moments of 46 past and present baseball institutions, from Fenway Park to Jacobs Field.

You'll find 304 pages of beautiful color photographs, stadium panoramas and detail shots, and artistic illustrations of those ballparks with the great moments in their histories.

As the ballparks in Milwaukee and Pittsburgh enter their final seasons, it's a book that remembers the great places where the greatest game on earth has been played.

This book takes a loving look at major league stadiums across North America. It starts off with a short history of ballpark construction, detailing the styles of each generation of parks. It's interesting how in the the 90s, the trend was to go back to the "old-style" stadiums like Camden Yards, Jacobs Field, and Pac Bell Park, here in San Francisco.
The authors resisted the urge to badmouth any of the stadiums that have been widely criticized, such as the "cookie-cutter" stadiums of the 70s like RiverFront Stadium (now Cinergy Field) in Cincinatti or Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia, choosing instead to concentrate on the positives and the experience of being at a particular park. I loved the description they gave of Candlestick (aka 3Com) Park, a stadium that for better or worse became my "home park" when I moved to Northern California.
The illustrations of each park, coupled with famous moments brought back a ton of memories for me. There are also numerous pictures of each ballpark, giving the reader a sense of history for each one. The book is divided into several sections, starting with the classic parks, like Wrigley & Fenway, through the current class of stadiums, to the ones not around anymore. Reading through the last section, I regretted not having had the chance to see games in some of these old parks.
One minor disapointment was that temporary parks (SF's Seals' Stadium, LA's Wrigley Field & Coliseum, Philly's Baker Bowl, Seattle's Sicks' Stadium, for example) were not mentioned. Perhaps a future edition could include them?
But other than that, this book is an excellent and entertaining reference that will keep you intrigued for hours at a time. A related book to buy if you haven't is the Lawrence Ritter book, Lost Ballparks.

This is a good overview of Major League Baseball ball parks old and new. I feel that this book was published a bit too early and glossed over new ball parks that have recently opened in San Francisco, Seattle, Detroit, and Houston. Each park is represented with a two page color painting reminiscent of the Mack/Amadee cartoons published in the Sporting News' previous ball park book (Take Me Out To The Ball Game, now sadly, out of print). The color pictures in this volume are some of the best to ever see print in book form. I did not like the organization of the book (Classics, Middle Ages, Turf Era, etc) because many of the stadiums actually fall into more than one catagory or are placed in the wrong catagory altogether (Tropicana, Pro Player). Also, some ball parks were omitted or just received passing mentions (Baker Bowl, Seals Stadium, LA Coliseum, Wrigley Field LA, Colt Stadium, Parc Jarry, Mile High Stadium, KC Muni, RFK). As the new baseball stadiums are coming along so fast, a revised volume will probably be needed as soon as next year. Hopefully they can find some way to incorporate those great Mack/Amadee stadium cartoons, reorganize the book by city, and give a fuller treatment of some of the neglected ball parks. I did enjoy reading this book but I did not feel it was as complete as the earlier Sporting News volume and these glaring omissions need to be addressed in a future edition.

For the fan who is just beginning to appreciate all of the ballparks in major league history, this is the volume for you. If you're a purist who is familiar with the "older" still-present or long-gone parks, you might have wanted(or expected) a little bit more material(pictures,etc.) than what was presented. Being from Michigan, I grew up at Tiger Stadium(Detroit), was fortunate enough to visit old Comiskey, Wrigley Field, Crosley Field and even old Yankee Stadium before the '74-'75 refurbishment. And our visit to Camden Yards during its' first year gave me hope for a return to the "traditional" ballparks of the early part of the 1900's. Those of you like myself looking for material from yesterday, please don't be too disappointed; for this volume is very comprehensive in covering all of the ballparks of yesterday and today regardless of era. A "must add to the collection" for all ball park eficionados in particular, if not baseball fans in gereral.

This book is styled after 'TAKE ME OUT TO THE BALLPARK' published by the Sporting News in 1983. That book included more stadiums that had not been played in for years, eg. Ebbetts Field, Braves Field, Sportman's Park. These were parks that featured many of baseball's historic moments. The Ballpark Book leaves out these older 'unused' parks, and focuses on today current crop of stadiums. The unfortunate point in this approach is that too many of today's ballfields have been built so recently, that not many historic events have been witnessed in them. My son has caught on to baseball, and so we try to visit any stadium we might on vacation. So this book is kind of like a family scrapbook for us too. The drawings are much better in this new book, and it's hardcover to boot. But I'll still leaf through my old '83 copy with joy.

I ordered this book after seeing it advertised on one of those internet banner ads- something I've never done before- so I was pleasantly surprised at the quality.
The thematic organization, great text and anectdotes, along with the excellence of the photographs (up to Life magazine standards) make it a must-have for any baseball fan. I was pleased with the obvious attention to detail that went into the making of this book, as it's evident that this project was a labor of love for someone.
There were two other baseball fans in my office who were clamoring over "The Ballpark Book", and I wouldn't be surprised if they order a copy themselves. The coffee-table book quality of presentation makes it an excellent gift, too.
Highly recommended!
