Cradle of the Game by Mark Cryan: a short review

Well-executed but nonetheless fairly typical tourist-oriented ballpark guide. A few of the ballyards are not currently involved in anything resembling an organized league.

This book is more ballpark oriented than most similar guides; the teams which inhabit the yards are mentioned, but not usually featured. Also tells local attractions, hotel suggestions, and a survey of economical eats for each town.

The last few chapters are a little skimpy. It may be that there was less material to share, but it feels like the author was pushing the deadline and rushed through them.
