In an era of unique baseball stadiums, the Polo Grounds in New York stood out from the rest. With its horseshoe shape, the Polo Grounds had extremely short distances down the foul lines and equally long distances up the alley and to center field. Some of baseball's most historic moments-Bobby Thomson's Shot Heard Round the World, Willy Mays' Catch, Fred Merkle's infamous blunder-happened at the Polo Grounds. This book offers descriptive text and photos which give a sense of the glory of this classic ballpark. Additionally, this book contains historic articles and memories submitted by more than 70 former players who played at the Polo Grounds.
