Format: Paperback
Bill once again shows his stuff as San Diego's premier baseball historian. With great photos and lively commentary, Bill paints a picture of nearly 70 years of baseball in America's Finest City. It's a must for any baseball junkie or San Diego history buff and holds a prominent place on my bookshelf.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Thomas L. Magness on October 31, 2004
Format: Paperback
I lived in San Diego from 1994 to 2004 and got to see many of the Padres' famous names, from Tony Gwynn and Ken Caminiti to Trevor Hoffman and Sean Burroughs. I saw the championship teams of 1996 and 1998, as well as Tony Gwynn's farewell and Dave Winfield's Hall of Fame induction. I even remember the old PCL Padres from the early 1960's and listened on the radio as the Padres won the 1984 National League pennant. This book is a treasure trove of reminders for those who remember the past as well as a good introduction to younger fans. And I will say this: the Padres and Padre fans do try to keep alive the memories of times gone by, constantly reminding us that there was good baseball in San Diego (especially with Ted Williams) before the major leagues came to town.

I work at the ballpark where the Padres play, and I've met the author. When my family moved to San Diego in 1956, we just missed the closing of Lane Field, and saw Padres' games at Lane Field, San Diego/Jack Murphy/Qualcomm Stadium. Now we have Petco Park.

The book describes the rich history of baseball in San Diego, and price of the book is well worth my money.
