In this lively chronicle of the creation of the Baltimore Orioles' new stadium, Richmond interweaves baseball history and hardball politics, architecture and the structure ot sports in the '90s to tell a tale as filled with tussles, turmoil, and triumphs as baseball itself.
From the Publisher:
Named one of the "Ten Best Sports Books" by The Sporting News, Ballpark is the compelling story of how Baltimore's magnificent Camden Yards ballpark was born, and the effects it has had on the city, the team, and the whole course of stadium-building across the country. It's both an examination of the city's psyche and a close look behind the scenes at our national pastime. This is a quintessentially American story of progress, movement, change, triumph, and of an eternal renewal of hope.In this lively chronicle of the creation of the Baltimore Orioles' new stadium, Richmond interweaves baseball history and hardball politics, architecture and the structure ot sports in the '90s to tell a tale as filled with tussles, turmoil, and triumphs as baseball itself.Named one of the "Ten Best Sports Books" by The Sporting News, Ballpark is the compelling story of how Baltimore's magnificent Camden Yards ballpark was born, and the effects it has had on the city, the team, and the whole course of stadiumbuilding across the country.
