On a June evening, a Pulitzer Prize-winner returned to the Bergino Baseball Clubhouse.
This stunning tribute to Wrigley Field, written by journalist Ira Berkow, coincides with the 100th anniversary of “the one and only.” Wrigley Field brilliantly and beautifully documents the stadium’s entire career through a decade-by-decade account, a priceless collection of historical photographs and memorabilia, and vivid first-person reminiscences of the people to whom this great place has meant so much.
Notable fans interviewed for this book include Barack Obama, Scott Turow, Joe Mantegna, Sara Paretsky, Jim Bouton, and George Will, among others. With a foreword by former major leaguer Kerry Wood and a preface by former U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, this is a keepsake book for all baseball fans.
Ira Berkow, a sports columnist and feature writer for The New York Times for 26 years, shared a Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting and was a Pulitzer finalist for Distinguished Commentary. The author of 20 books, Ira was born and raised in Chicago, but has called New York home for many years.
