Best baseball-related reading I’ve done this weekend is this thoughtful rejoinder to Paul Goldberger’s book by Ben Schulman. A taste:
Schulman expands on this connection of culture, design, and the game since Camden Yards was built, and connects the concrete donuts to aspects of play that we have lost of late. (Which is funny, as concrete donut GRF has usually been in the upper half of homer havens this century.) Definitely recommended if you enjoyed reading Ballpark and enjoy architectural history debates.
