In the Ballpark is a collection of interviews with twenty-one people who work in all parts of Major and Minor League Baseball: usher and broadcaster, beer vendor and sportswriter, clubhouse attendant and field manager, ticket seller and owner, scout and general manager, mascot and player. Organized by setting-the stands, the field, the press box, and the front office-the accounts yield a wealth of insight into little-known aspects of the game. The new concluding chapter provides updates on the subjects since they were interviewed ten years ago as well as updates on how their jobs and the game itself has changed since In the Ballpark was first published.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a rare book that can actually make you see a baseball game in a different way."-New York Times Book Review * New York Times Book Review *
"George Gmelch and J. J. Weiner bring the national pastime alive from the standpoints of its lesser-known participants. . . . A vivid, many-layered depiction of the human side of baseball-the side you don't get to see from a seat in the grandstand."-Parade Magazine * Parade Magazine *
"An important book about the contemporary nature and business of baseball. It is a worthwhile addition to any baseball library and an excellent introduction to the action and magic of the game that we do not often see or think about."-NINE: A Journal of Baseball History and Culture * NINE: A Journal of Baseball History and Culture *
