Wrigley Field: A Celebration of the Friendly Confines
Title | Wrigley Field: A Celebration of the Friendly Confines
Author | Stephen Green (Photographer)
Type | Book
Rating | 10
Notes | Wrigley Field brings to life and pays tribute to one of baseball's greatest ballparks. The story of this revered park, from its opening in 1914 through today, this revered park's story is gloriously depicted in picture and in word. This up-close-and personal record, proves why Wrigley is sacred ground to millions, from its manually operated scoreboard and the climbing green ivy of its outfield walls, to the raucous bleacher bums and bright days bathed in sunlight, massaged by Lake Michigan's soothing breezes. It is a refuge, it is a haven, it is an escape--from the workweek or from homework. Produced with the full cooperation of the Chicago Cubs, Wrigley Field pays fitting tribute to the ballpark's extraordinary nine decades-its history and unique features, its vitality, its people, and its greatest moments--through intimate, enthralling perspectives from the team's official photographer, Stephen Green, as well as team and private archives. Wrigley Field is the most stunningly visual and complete book ever on this beloved park that is like no other.

Comments | [02/14/03] This is one of the finest coffee table photo books on the market. The photos are breath taking. From the front cover and throughout the book, Cubs team photographer provides image upon image of photos never before seen. There are photos taken inside the scoreboard, photos of the surrounding area, of fans, and so much more. I can't think of any type of photo that has been omitted. If I could, I would give this book a much higher rating! I am proud to say that Stephen is a friend of mine.

Comments | [01/07/03] I just got finished reading this book and admiring the terrific work of Cub's photographer Stephen Green. The only thing that really upset me was when the book ended because I wanted to see and read more. However, the wonderful black and white image by Green of the empty ballpark at the end of the book was a real nice going away present. Ya can't beat fun at the ol' ballpark and ya can't beat a book about Wrigley by the current-day photographer who knows it better than anyone else. Nice job Steve!
