    For all you fans of old ballparks.........

    Talent is God Given: be humble.
    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.

    Thanks so much, Randy.

    I wish someone in Cincinnati had taken such a series of pictures when Crosley came down.

    One of the more overlooked losses in baseball, I think.

    Yes, great find, thanks for sharing it.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Well done. I love the format of this, and especially enjoyed the Philly parks. Someone should go take some current shots on Western Avenue, and do a similar thing with Crosley. There's some good stuff at 'where's Crosely now', but I think the before/after shots on this site are very effective.
    ". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

    Wait, there are more? All I saw was Comiskey. How do you get there?

    Lots of old parks. I especially enjoyed the long slideshow on Connie Mack and the Baker Bowl, which were only 5 blocks apart.

    Thanks for posting this, Randy!
