When Stan Fridstein and his son decided to visit all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums, they never realized how difficult it would be to find useful information that would help them create the most memorable experiences. What are the hidden costs associated with such a journey? How should you spend your non-baseball stadium time? Where are the hidden treasures in each stadium? When should you stay near the stadiums and when should you stay elsewhere? How do you secure special private ballpark tours? How do you plan the logistics of each trip? Where is the best food in each venue? So many questions and there was no comprehensive, easy to follow resource available. Stan promised himself that when he and his son completed their journey, he would create a comprehensive guide for others interested in visiting many or all MLB ballparks. Whether you're doing it alone, with a buddy or with your kid, this invaluable book provides everything you'll need to create the most extraordinary possible baseball trips. Every MLB city has unique points of interest and every ballpark is a treasure open to exploration.

Spring training is a time of renewal for baseball, when teams and fans descend on Florida and Arizona to begin the ever hopeful new season. The pace is a little slower, the fans are closer to the action, and the players are more accessible: the sport returns to its idyllic roots. When the first edition of this book was released, 18 of the MLB teams trained in Florida and 12 in Arizona. As 2013 arrives each league consists of 15 teams; together they utilize 14 parks in Florida and 10 in Arizona. This heavily illustrated work dedicates a chapter to each park, including modern Cactus League marvels like Camelback Ranch and Salt River Fields, and Grapefruit League bastions like Joker Marchant Stadium and McKechnie Field. Florida's Fenway Park replica, which opened in 2012, is included. In addition to profiling the five parks that have opened since the first edition, the author has updated the other chapters. Each provides a description of the park, and a recounting of its history, followed by a summary of the home team or teams' spring history. Next is a review of the park's seating, concessions and fan traditions. Each chapter concludes with information about nearby baseball landmarks and attractions.

The ultimate baseball road trip, this extraordinary journey to 50 stadiums, both past and present, brings to life the history and highlights of each in glorious photographs and the personal reminiscences of players, managers, sportswriters, and well-known spectators. From Ebbets Field to Camden Yards, major league ballparks hold a special place in the hearts of millions of Americans. Blue Skies, Green Fields recreates the unforgettable experience of glimpsing the panorama of sky and manicured field for the first time, and it provides the stats baseball fans relish. The 30 current stadiums and 20 parks of the past--including beloved favorites like Old Comiskey Park and Yankee Stadium, new parks like Safeco Field in Seattle and Cinergy Field in Cincinnati, and such misbegotten mistakes as the Minneapolis Metrodrome and Candlestick Park--are captured in full-color photographs of interiors and exteriors, authoritative stats, and a brief historical narrative. Contributing their personal memories of the ballparks are legends such as Reggie Jackson, Whitey Ford, Derek Jeter, Cal Ripken, Jr., and Mark McGuire; broadcasters from Harry Kalas to Bob Costas; Tommy Lasorda, Sparky Anderson, and other managers; and fans ranging from George Plimpton to Jesse Ventura.

Though it has changed some in recent years, spring training continues to be a time of renewal for baseball. Teams and fans, many from the snowy climes of the North, descend on Florida and Arizona to begin preparing for what they are sure will be a trip to the World Series. With the pace of the game a little slower, fans close to the action, and players more accessible, the sport seems to return to its roots for a brief, idyllic time. Based on the author's visits to each of the 26 current spring training ballparks—17 in Florida and 9 in Arizona—this reference work first provides a detailed description of the ballpark as it currently exists, plus information on its history. Next comes the spring training history of the resident major league team (or teams, for the four parks that are shared), along with information about noteworthy spring training sites that were, or still are, located near the existing ballpark. Information on the area surrounding the ballpark completes the entry, focusing on other baseball and sports-related attractions in the area. An appendix provides a full listing of every major league team's spring training sites since 1914. Heavily illustrated.

Why I Hate the Yankees

This is a must read for any Yankees hater-or any Yankees fan wondering why his or her team is so hated! O'Connell and Pahigian are also the authors of The Ultimate Baseball Road-Trip.

Why I Hate the Yankees offers a humorous take on the most beloved--and at the same time, most reviled--franchise in American professional sports. The book attempts to answer the question: Do we hate the Yankees merely because they always win, or is there more to it than just that? The authors deconstruct the origins of the so-called Yankee mystique, offer countless examples of Yankee arrogance, and critique the Yankees' easy-way-out business model whereby they merely outspend other teams for talent. The authors leave no one exempt from blame, parodying the Yankees' fans, players, and overbearing owner, and questioning the motives of the national media and Major League Baseball. The tongue-in-cheek narrative is interspersed with revealing quotes from Yankee players, fans, media members, and other writers. A must-read for any hater--or lover--of the Yankees.
