PREVIEW: New book explores Pittsburgh’s historic baseball parks
By Sean P. Ray | Managing Editor
Like many people, Mark Falta found himself with little to do during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic with so many public venues shut down. As such, he decided to dedicate himself to a project to fill his time.
That project turned out to be a book detailing Pittsburgh’s various baseball parks throughout the decades, and is now set to release on March 13 through Arcadia Publishing. Titled “Pittsburgh’s Historic Ballparks,” the tome goes into the history of where professional baseball was played in Pittsburgh between 1876 and the present, including a look at the Negro Leagues.
Check out March’s issue of The Northside Chronicle for the full story.
