Dan O’Neill’s “Sportsman”s Park” is an oversize collection of stories and pictures of the last quarter century that St. Louis summers were spent watching baseball at Grand and Dodier. Here we page through the heroes, the characters, the great plays and memorable events, the Cardinals and the visitors but mostly, and even the Browns. Joe Garagiola tells us of his first visit to the Park, with his friend Yogi, and his return years later as a player. Leaf though the photos of the Babe and the Man, the All-Star Broadcasting Team, and the All-Star Infield, Maury Wills and Lou, Lou, Lou! When you finish reading it, put it on your coffee table through baseball season so your guests can enjoy the memories of the Golden Age of St. Louis Baseball.
