Product Details


“As a Pulitzer Prize–winning architecture critic, Paul Goldberger brings scholarship and a discerning eye to these pages. He also brings a thoughtful fan’s appreciation of baseball’s unique appeal and romance. Qualities which are enhanced, or diminished, by ballpark design.” —Bob Costas
“There has never been a book on a sports subject that approaches a subject through the historical designs of its playing fields or, surely, does it as well. Through his architectural expertise and with compelling writing skills, Paul Goldberger in Ballpark: Baseball in the American City takes the reader into arenas that embrace unique and pleasurable insights of what is commonly referred to as our national pastime.” —Ira Berkow
“If you love anything about baseball, architecture or the history of modern American cities—just pick one of the three!—you will love Ballpark. Paul Goldberger’s passion for how architecture is an integral part of our everyday lives, along with his elegant writing, makes this book an enchanting tour through time and space, and urban aspirations. I doubt I will ever again sit in a ballpark, or any stadium, without thinking of this book.” —Douglas Alden, sports historian and author of ESPN’s “The Diary of Myles Thomas”
