I'm obsessed with old ballparks this Summer and this book fits the bill, at least for the 6 parks that Buckley wrote about. They are: Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, Wrigley Field, Polo Grounds, Ebbets Field, and Tiger Stadium. The only bad thing was that a few more parks weren't included. I really wanted Comiskey Park. Milwaukee County Stadium would have been fun too. Maybe Buckley can write a Part 2 and include Forbes Field, Comiskey, County Stadium, Shibe Park, Sportsman's Park, etc. I love the format and I love this book. Thanks!
