Shibe Park was demolished in 1976, and today its site is surrounded by the devastation of North Philadelphia. Kuklick, however, vividly evokes the feelings people had about the home of the Philadelphia Athletics and later the Phillies.

Industry Reviews

Winner of the 1991 SABR-MacMillan Book Award, Society for American Baseball Research Winner of the 1991 Casey Award, Spitball: The Literary Baseball Magazine "One of the most important baseball books in recent years."--George Robinson, Washington Post "[Kuklick] shows what a ballpark can mean to a neighborhood: 'Shibe Park was a place where uncommon deeds gave people a sense of commonality. In this, its special beauty, the game at Shibe Park rose above the flaws of its businessmen, its players, and its fans.' "--Sports Illustrated "[Kuklick] writes with authority, perspective, and compassion..."--Philadelphia Inquirer
