The author does an excellent job in describing Philadelphia's former baseball parks. As someone who grew up in Philadelphia in the 1950s and 1960s, it brought back fond memories of Shibe Park/Connie Mack Stadium. You feel you were actually there as a fan in these parks, especially Baker Bowl and Shibe Park. The author was obviously very thorogh in his research. One of the things I especially liked is that he apparently conducted numerous interviews of former players, writers, team officials and their relatives, and fans, and didn't rely solely on published materials, as some authors do. His writing style is clear, informative and very readable. I recommend the book highly. I plan to see what other books the author has written.
