BEHIND THE BAG will attempt to illuminate the smaller stories behind the big teams, big parks and big games of the classic baseball park era (up to approximately 1970). Those who are regulars to baseball-fever.com’s Ballparks forums will know me as “alpineinc”, a long-time poster who scours the ends of the internet for classic photos and articles that would otherwise be forgotten. From there, I decided to start this blog to expand on themes and ideas started there, and there will be a lot of posts repeated from that site early on, so bear with me! Also, enjoy the rotating classic ballpark headers above, classic shots of classic parks! And, all photos on this site will be linked to larger versions that open in separate tabs/windows for closer viewing. Anyway, enjoy and feel free to respond to anything here!
