Both Philadelphia and New Jersey have a rich history when it comes to baseball. Philadelphia has been home to the Baker Bowl, Shibe Park, Veterans Stadium and now Citizens Bank Park. Other places such as Shibe Vintage Sports, Everybody Hits Philadelphia and Mike Trout Field in Millville, New Jersey are worth a visit for true baseball fans. Did you know Roy Campanella attended high school in Philadelphia or that there is a Yogi Berra Museum in New Jersey? Where is the Connie Mack statue located? What is Pop Lloyd’s connection to Atlantic City? This book explores these topics and much more. Each chapter touches upon a specific baseball historic site. Also included are several photos of each location. If you are a fan of baseball, local history or a little of both, you should enjoy this book. The author grew up in the 1980s and writes about his fond memories of the Phillies, Veterans Stadium and his love of baseball.
