Baseball is one of America's favorite and constant pastimes. The parks in which the games are played, however, have changed significantly over time. Most of the wooden-bench original stadiums are gone, bulldozed to make way for huge, multi-seat emporiums for the modern successful baseball team. This book uses old photographs to look at these wonderful old baseball grounds that are so full of nostalgia for the true fan and shows their modern counterparts in contemporary photographs. Sometimes the old ball park has given way to the new, but more often than not, the park itself has moved entirely to another bigger site. Ballparks Then and Now includes the current American and National League ball parks, as well as former league stadiums.
