Baseball, more than any other sport, is dependent on the environment in which its played. The weather can send fair balls foul or cancel a game- the condition of the grass is crucial- and the size of the stadium, especially the placement and height of its walls, help to determine which balls land comfortably in an outfielders glove and which ones sail out into the parking lot, allowing the hitter and runners to stroll casually toward home plate.This beautiful volume tours some of the greatest major league ballparks ever erected, with statistics and trivia on each one.

From Wrigley Field to Dodger Stadium, from The House that Ruth Built to the Big Green Monster at Fenway Park, this thoughtfully researched and colorfully illustrated volume examines the subtle and sweeping features that make every ballpark unique, as well as the overarching trends that have dictated stadium architecture over the past century. Ballparks:-- features more than one hundred full-color and archival photographs and illustrations-- includes classic, modern, and new retrostyled ballparks, as well as the great parks of the past-- provides, in a useful appendix, the specifications for each field in the major leagues
