Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

On April 12th this year, "Play Ball!" sounded for the first time at Target Field in downtown Minneapolis. This spacious open-air stadium, the first ever built specifically for the Twins, was the result of years of planning, designing, financing, and construction; the stories of all of which are seamlessly intertwined in Steve Berg's new book about this architectural monument to the appeal of baseball.
