PERFECT NAME FOR THIS GEM

THIS BOOK IS ONE OF THE BEST EVER WRITTEN FOR THE HISTORY AND DETAIL OF BASBALL STADIUMS. THE AUTHOR DOES AN INCREDIBLE JOB OF FINDING THE MOST MINUTE DETAILS OF SEVERAL STADIUMS. IT WAS YEARS IN THE MAKING. THIS IS A MUST FOR ALL BASEBALL FANS WHO ENJOY NOSTALIGIA AND WANT TO BROADEN THEIR HORIZONS ON THE HISTORY OF EARLY BASBALL STADIUMS TO THE MODERN DAY. AN EXCELLENT REFERENCE BOOK AND A MUST FOR COLLECTORS OF BASEBALL HISTORY.

comprehensive, nostalgic, delightful

It boggles my mind that the author actually did all that research to find out the dimensions, important events, descriptions, and in many cases photos of every major league ballpark ever to host a game. The result is a feeling like I imagine it would be to see a game at Fenway Park: a visit to a temple of baseball. The title could not be more perfectly chosen.Lowry has also promoted a bit of healing. Having recognized what any aficionado of baseball history knows--that the Negro Leagues of old were surely major leagues on a par with the AL and NL, except in recordkeeping--he spurs interest in a too-often forgotten part of baseball's past.This book is absolutely essential to the library of any true lover of baseball history.

A collection of the holy shrines of America's past-time

This book was long overdue. Philip J. Lowry certainly did his research to find all these ballparks--even including some that were used briefly at the turn of the century! Listed are parks used by both the American and National Leagues, the Federal, Union, and Players Leagues of early baseball history, and the Negroe Leagues. Now I'm waiting for the minor league edition to come out.
