Ballparks have long been an integral part of the American scene, as this exhaustive survey of past and present playing fields illustrates. The author's intent is to show how ballparks ("like snowflakes, no two quite the same") have come to be as much a part of baseball lore as the game itself. Entries are arranged chronologically by city and include location, league affiliations, dimensions, seating capacity, and attendance records. Accompanying essays provide a historical setting and regional flavor for the development of each structure. While the demand for such data may be limited, this is an impressive work, appropriate for large sports reference collections.- William H. Hoffman, Fort Myers-Lee Cty. P.L., Fla.
