This book can be covered rather quickly since it is primarily made up of photographs of both the St. Louis Browns and St. Louis Cardinals. Sportsman's Park has the distinction of being the home of more major league baseball games than any other in the game's illustrious history. Ex-Cardinals' catcher, Joe Garagiola, weighs in with his interesting experiences when introduced to Sportsman's Park. Bill DeWitt Jr's son's experiences in meeting Babe Ruth on the field shortly before the Babe's death is recounted. The photos of DeWitt's son eyeing-up the Babe are especially heartwarming. Despite his frail health Ruth shows a sincere interest in visiting with the young boy. This book contains several photos both in color and black and white I haven't seen in other books of both the Browns and Cardinals during their heyday. I suppose it helps to be a fan of either St. Louis team, but as a fan of baseball history this will be a book you should enjoy.

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.

For a fan of baseball history, especially the old park at Grand and Dodier, this is a must have. There are many wonderful color and black and whites of action shots from games, as well as other angles of the park itself. I was born too late to have ever attended a game at Sportman's Park, but after looking at the pictures, I felt like I could imagine what it must have been like. The only two complaints I have are 1. Why is Mickey Mantle on the cover next to Musial and Gibson? and 2. Can we see more pictures like pre 1940 or old football games? Mr. O'Neill, a sequel would be most appreciated!
