America's classic ballparks( Visual )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This homerun hit recalls an earlier America that fell in love with baseball and an era when owners built bigger arenas to house our fast-growing national pastime. By 1923, 15 iconic steel and concrete parks had been built, yet no two were alike: Each had its own unique character, and fans were close to the action. Narrated by Golden Globe-nominated actor Jeff Daniels, this documentary traces the history of four classic American ballparks using both archival footage and modern film: Wrigley Field (1914), Comiskey Park (1910), Tiger Stadium (1912), and Fenway Park (1912)
