The source volume for the popular baseball-shaped wall calendars Daedalus offers each year, this 2006 book is an entertaining visual tour of America's great ballparks, from Shea Stadium, Fenway Park, and Wrigley Field to modern marvels like Oriole Park at Camden Yards and Busch Stadium in St. Louis. With more than 250 large color photographs and illustrations, the book surveys every then-current Major League stadium and important minor league parks, as well as famous Negro League fields and notable stadiums from baseball's past. Each stadium is brought to life through accounts of its history, features of its unique construction, and stories of the famous players who called it home.
"A valuable and welcome companion.... Take Me Out to the Ballpark celebrates the glory in the buildings and grounds where America's game has been played."—NYDaily News
