By Scrapple8 on December 13, 2012
Format: Paperback
The 2010 baseball book, Silver Seasons and a New Frontier, can be described better with its subtitle: The Story of the Rochester Red Wings. Authors Jim Mandelaro and Scott Pitoniak targeted the baseball fans of the Flower City, Rochester NY - but any fan of the International League will find the story informative.

Rochester is a great place to watch professional baseball. Silver Stadium was a grand old facility with a deep center field fence and a cascade of memories, but it was also located in a bad part of town. When it flunked the facilities test for Triple A ballparks given by major league baseball in 1991, its days were numbered. Still, the ballpark had its charms, and it was sad to see Silver Stadium go. Along came Frontier Park, a beautiful new ballpark conveniently located on the west end of downtown Rochester. Assuredly, many new memories will be made in the new ballpark for years to come. One main reason to read Silver Seasons was for its stories about these ballparks, as well as information about Morrie Silver, the record store owner who saved professional baseball in Rochester. Silver Stadium was named after him, as well as Morrie Silver Way, one of the streets adjacent to the new ballpark.

Another reason is to learn about the two best teams in the history of the Rochester Red Wings. The 1930 Wings and the 1971 Red Wings were both loaded with major league talent. Both teams finished in first place. While post-season play was not available to the 1930 club, the 1971 team won the Governor's Cup and also defeated the Denver Bears of the PCL to win the Junior World Series. Both teams supplied notable major league teams: the Gas House Gang of the Cardinals and the powerful Orioles teams of the 1970s.
