Cincinnati's Crosley Field: The Illustrated History of a Classic Ballpark

Cincinnati's Crosley Field: The Illustrated History of a Classic Ballpark 
    Crosley Field and another Rhodes-Erardi production, Big Red Dynasty, were honored among the top baseball books in the country by Spitball literary magazine and the Society for American Baseball Research. They also co-authored First Boys of Summer and Opening Day. Rhodes' other books are Redleg Journal, Reds in Black and White, and Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame Highlights. Erardi's other book, Pete Rose: 4,192, sole 50,000 copies.

     Cincinnati's Crosley Field presents the field's history through text and more than 150 photographs. The Cincinnati Reds played at Crosley Field from 1912 through 1970, and the ballpark holds an iconic place in the city's history as well as throughout Reds Country. One of the most beloved ballparks in Major League history, Crosley Field played host to the first night game and the first of Johnny Vander Meer's back-to-back no-hitters, as well as four World Series and two All-Star games.

    From the outfield terrace to the "Moon Deck," from Lombardi's "snooze" to Big Klu's biceps, Blackwell's "whip" to Rose's belly-flop slides, the Redlegs to the Big Red Machine, Cincinnati's Crosley Field has them covered in words and pictures. Greg Rhodes and John Erardi also present the great Negro Leagues teams that played at Crosley, as well as the field's many colorful characters, such as longtime announcer Waite Hoyt and the top-hatted vendor known as Peanut Jim. In April 2009, the Reds' Hall of Fame and Museum opens this season's key exhibit, Crosley Field Remembered, and Cincinnati's Crosley Field will be sold at the team's gift shop as a souvenir.
