Book is Missing the Bigger Picture
I have just finished reading Mr. McGee's fine book on Ebbets Field, a ballpark which was gone by the time I was 6 years old. He has methodically researched this book, providing many excellent insights on the history and departure of the Dodgers....an excellent balance of baseball, politics, and Brooklyn. Where this book fails miserably is that there are not enough photographs of Ebbets Field in the center montage. There is not one excellent interior panorama picture of the seating bowl, no good pictures of the concave outfield fence, and no seating diagram. Mr. McGee gives us the ' feel ' of Ebbets Field, but has forgotten to give us a ' look ' at the old place. I recommend this book to anyone interested in historic ballparks, but there are MANY more pictures of Ebbets Field on various websites.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
