About us

Welcome to Lost Ballparks! 

How it started

I grew up going to Municipal Stadium in Cleveland with my Dad. Those lazy, sunny afternoons spent on Lake Erie are some of my favorite childhood memories. When I lost my Dad in 2009, I became reflective and really started to think about how these old, lost ballparks keep us connected to not just baseball history, but to those we love; the ones who took us to games, bought us our first baseball cap and pack of cards.

I have always been the nostalgic type and even more than old photos or details about a particular ballpark, what I love are the stories that folks tell.

"Lost Ballparks" is a podcast (new episode every Wednesday) that takes you on a journey to the "golden age" of baseball's Lost Ballparks as told by the players, broadcasters and fans who provide first hand accounts of what it was like to sit in the seats on a summer afternoon at Ebbets Field, the Polo Grounds, Metropolitan Stadium, Forbes Field, Jarry Park, Yankee Stadium, Comiskey Park, Crosley Field and many more.
