In the Ballpark : The Working Lives of Baseball People, Paperback / softback Book

In the Ballpark : The Working Lives of Baseball People Paperback / softback


In the Ballpark is a collection of interviews with twenty-one people who work in all parts of Major and Minor League Baseball: usher and broadcaster, beer vendor and sportswriter, clubhouse attendant and field manager, ticket seller and owner, scout and general manager, mascot and player. Organized by setting-the stands, the field, the press box, and the front office-the accounts yield a wealth of insight into little-known aspects of the game.

The new concluding chapter provides updates on the subjects since they were interviewed ten years ago as well as updates on how their jobs and the game itself has changed since In the Ballpark was first published.
