9780786444212: Ballparks of North America: A Comprehensive Historical Encyclopedia of Baseball Grounds, Yards and Stadiums, 1845 to 1988

What grandstand collapsed during a game, killing twelve? How high is the Green monster in Fenway? In what park was the outfield fence only 187 feet from home plate? Ballparks of North America is a comprehensive encyclopedia of the grounds, yards and stadiums used for organized baseball from the invention of the sport in the 1840s to the year 1988. Entries, listed alphabetically by community, cover everything from cornfields to Yankee Stadium. Each entry gives the location of the park, who played there and when, home run dimensions, seating capacity, architectural comments, attendance records, and anecdotes. More than 100 photos and drawings are included, some rare.

About the Author:

Michael Benson, is the author of more than 50 books on sports, film, crime and conspiracy. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

From Library Journal:

Ballparks have long been an integral part of the American scene, as this exhaustive survey of past and present playing fields illustrates. The author's intent is to show how ballparks ("like snowflakes, no two quite the same") have come to be as much a part of baseball lore as the game itself. Entries are arranged chronologically by city and include location, league affiliations, dimensions, seating capacity, and attendance records. Accompanying essays provide a historical setting and regional flavor for the development of each structure. While the demand for such data may be limited, this is an impressive work, appropriate for large sports reference collections.
- William H. Hoffman, Fort Myers-Lee Cty. P.L., Fla.
