About this title


Shibe Park was demolished in 1976, and today its site is surrounded by the devastation of North Philadelphia. Kuklick, however, vividly evokes the feelings people had about the home of the Philadelphia Athletics and later the Phillies.

From the Back Cover:

"An exceptionally valuable contribution to the new genre of serious and adult baseball history. . . . As for those who say how important is a ball park really, I'd say this. In a way the Coliseum was a ball park. Look at how much it tells us about Imperial Rome."--Roger Kahn
