Synopsis

"The Baseball Stadium Insider is the essential companion to your ballpark experience. Inside, you’ll discover the features, facts, and figures that make each stadium unique. From the saltwater tank filled with live cow-nosed rays at Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay to the Ferris wheel and carousel at Comerica Park in Detroit, exciting details await you with every turn of the page.
This comprehensive ballpark guide will appeal not only to fanatics of America’s pastime, but novice baseball admirers as well. Have you ever been to a game and wondered about the retired numbers adorning the outfield wall? Wonder no more—The Baseball Stadium Insider explains what each of these great ballplayers did to become baseball legends.
Finally, all of the incredible games that have etched themselves into baseball history over the decades are represented. Who could ever forget Game 6 of the 1975 World Series when Boston’s Carlton Fisk hit his famous extra-inning home run off Fenway’s left field foul pole? Or when the Cleveland Indians, down 14–2 in the seventh inning, staged one of the greatest comebacks in baseball history to defeat the Seattle Mariners?
So go ahead, take yourself out to the ballgame and get to know the cathedrals of baseball."
