What grandstand collapsed during a game, killing twelve? How high is the Green monster in Fenway? In what park was the outfield fence only 187 feet from home plate? ""Ballparks of North America"" is a comprehensive encyclopedia of the grounds, yards and stadiums used for organized baseball from the invention of the sport in the 1840s to the present. Entries, listed alphabetically by community, cover everything from cornfields to Yankee Stadium.

This title includes over 100 photos and drawings, some rare.
