Review

"Malan's efforts have resulted in a marvelous resource that will serve Bristolians and historians well in the decades ahead." - ForeWord Reviews

From the Author

I had never set foot in Connecticut or New England until I moved to Bristol in July 2000. By chance, I lived just a few minutes from Muzzy Field. I was stunned when I heard about Babe Ruth's visits in 1919 and 1920, and I was inspired to chronicle this ballpark's rich history as I uncovered more and more amazing stories of athletes and teams that have played there. My goal with this book is to raise awareness about the value of such special places in our country and to provide more historical context for people who have played, will play or will watch games at this magnificent field. Muzzy Field is a living musuem of history, and I hope you use this as your guidebook.

As a sports fanatic the story about Babe Ruth and Vince Lombardi both playing on this field really was interesting.
Jimmy
Books have been written of these places and a sense of purpose and of history and respect is conveyed of tales passed down through the generations.
Richard C. Geschke
It is books like this that keep baseball alive and while I am just finishing up this great book, it is the type of book one can read again.

Many baseball fields do have a soul. I'm convinced that certain fields carry the aura of the ghosts of long ago players who once roamed the fields of baseball competition. Most of those baseball fields are now long gone. Such fields as old Tiger Stadium, Sportsman's Park, Ebbets Field, The Polo Grounds, old Yankee Stadium or the one I knew of as a kid growing up in Cleveland, Ohio that being League Park. These places do indeed have a soul. Major league baseball was the primary use of these fields. However in all these sports venues other sports such as professional football were also played. Books have been written of these places and a sense of purpose and of history and respect is conveyed of tales passed down through the generations.
Douglas Malin who now resides in Bristol Connecticut, as I also do, has written a historical account of a field in Bristol which has been around for one hundred years. In fact this field is still being used for baseball and high school football. It is still a wonderful functional field serving the community of Bristol. Malin tells of the history of the making of the field and the major events of what took place on the field. Most of his insight and references come from the Bristol Press which is still published to this day.
The golden days of Muzzy Field coincide with the golden days of semi-professional ball or town ball in which every town of some size had their own baseball teams. Bristol in the 1920s was no different than any other New England town; they also had their own baseball team. Usually these teams were organized by companies within the towns. They brought in talented players, whose main job was to play baseball but in reality were paid their wages as employees of these companies.

Mr. Douglas Malan wrote a book called "Muzzy Field: Tales From a Forgotten Ballpark". This book was so well written that it reached me in several ways. As a sports fanatic the story about Babe Ruth and Vince Lombardi both playing on this field really was interesting. I would recommend Mr. Malans Muzzy Field book to anyone who is a historian, sports fan, or a baseball junky. Please go out and get a copy today!

Thanks,
Jimmy White

It is books like this that keep baseball alive and while I am just finishing up this great book, it is the type of book one can read again. Congrats Mr Malan on your first book and I hope you write many more. I for one appreciate it. Thank you
