As our national pastime entered the 1990s, a new agreement between Major League Baseball and the Minors spawned a new generation of stadiums to house many of America's farm clubs. How each new ballpark came to be offers its own, unique story. But none is quite as compelling as the one surrounding the one-time home of the New York-Penn League's St. Louis Cardinals' Class-A affiliate, the NJ Cardinals. The Circus Is In Town: A Baseball Odyssey, provides a first-person account of the development of Skylands Park and the relocation of the Hamilton Redbirds to Sussex County, as well as an intimate look at the background of Rob Hilliard, the driving force behind this real-life "field of dreams" saga.
