The Amazing Baseball Adventure: Ballpark Wonders From The Bushes To The Show

A visually stunning road trip through pro baseball's wacky, wondrous, and revered ballpark attractions

Exploding scoreboards, treetop seats, and neon skylines are just three of the more than 100 ballpark design features, field eccentricities, historic displays, traditions, concession items, and even super-fans and mascots profiled in this armchair baseball journey. Combining engaging storytelling with fun sidebars and beautiful color photos, author Josh Pahigian captures the essence of each ballpark treasure from the retractable lighthouse at the Portland Sea Dogs' Hadlock Field to the Sausage Race at the Brewers' Miller Park to Fenway Park's Green Monster and even to the delicious biscuits served by the aptly named Montgomery Biscuits. From the Rookie Leagues to the Majors, there are more than 250 professional baseball parks in the United States where fans partake in special game-day rituals, eat unique foods, laugh along with the zany mascot, marvel at the park's special features, and revel in a communal experience that removes them for a few hours from life's daily grind. The Amazing Baseball Adventure brings to life the very best of these cherished ballpark features, the ones that motivate fans to return again and again to baseball cathedrals large and small.
