Top Customer Reviews
Superbly written and informative throughout, "Field of Screams" is replete with always spirited and often humorous accounts and anecdotes from around the globe - from Fenway to LA, from Catalina to the Caribbean, from Latin America to Japan. With hundreds of fascinating legends, locations, and characters from prehistoric times to the present - ranging from ancient Native American burial grounds in Florida, to Ty Cobb's running the bases at CoAmerica Park - it's a uniquely fun ride through Baseball history!
And, for Babe Ruth fans, like myself, there is no better compendium of the Big Bambino's haunts anywhere. From the hallowed grounds of Old Yankee Stadium, to the speakeasies of St. Petersburg, and beyond, 'Close Encounters of the No. 3 Kind,' as they could be called, are all documented in detail in this great new book.
This is a great book, I even like the stories.
