This is an engrossing, informative collection of baseball memories and author Andrew Paul Mele's own experiences of days gone by and baseball played in Brooklyn New York's Parade Grounds. This park was the sporting ground for hundreds of young athletes from Brooklyn's diverse neighborhoods and cultures. Chuck Connors, Wally Edge, Fred Wilpon, Sandy Koufax, Tommy Davis, Tony Nunziello, John Candalaria, Clarence Irving, Tony Maglio, Nick Maglio, Mario Cuomo, Frank Torre, Joe Torre, Willie Randolph, Billy Gates, Roberto Hernandez just to mention a few. The book captures the essence of baseball and it imprint on the lives of its young players. Some entered professional baseball. Some excelled in other fields, education, entertainment, politics. All carried the lessons and disciplines learned from playing baseball at the Parade Grounds. If Kevin Costner is interested in creating another film about sports, this book is the perfect source of a "FIELD OF DREAMS" sequel. Well written with beautiful photographs.
