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 America’s favorite pastime has changed, and how much it’s stayed the same in Ballparks Then & Now.
  • Crammed with history and facts, this unique city-by-city tour of America’s hallowed playing fields pairs archival images with modern photos of baseball’s beloved landmarks like Union Grounds, Wrigley Field, Fenway Park, and the Negro League’s 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 Boston’s Grand Pavilion and Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis, constructed after baseball went professional in 1871.
  • Witness the ballpark renaissance of the 1990’s 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 they’re sitting in the bleachers or luxury box.
