Here’s a delightful little documentary about the Polo Grounds. I’ve always loved the metaphor of a baseball stadium as a church or cathedral. I feel the same way about Kauffman Stadium every time I attend a Royals game.
It’s always a shame when stadiums like this get torn down. I understand that progress sometimes dictates the need for such things, but so much history gets lost in the process, too.

If you like that metaphor, you must love Bull Durham. 🙂
Ha! I wasn’t thinking about Bull Durham when I wrote that, but yes, I do enjoy the movie and that metaphor is definitely a highlight in the film. 🙂
