Who better to document many old and lost baseball parks than a guy who played in them? Jerry Reuss
, 220 game winner, thrower of a no hitter
, broadcaster, man who played in 4 different decades (60s, 70s, 80s and 90s) did just that.I carried a camera to every Major League ballpark I visited from 1988-1990. I knew my playing days were coming to an end and I wanted to capture the memories as I saw them. My thanks to the players, managers, coaches, trainers, members of the grounds crews around the game for their support, not only in this project, but for the great memories that I carry from the game. I dedicate this set of photos to you.
His baseball card photos
are a window into 70s and 80s hairstyles and uniforms. His scorecards and scorebooks set
is a link to an earlier time in baseball before big money and PEDs got involved. All of his picture sets are fascinating including From the Box in the Closet
and his own photos. He takes photos
of interesting period buildings, churches, his little league team photos, classic cars, beers, and many other things too.
Reuss also has been a minor league pitching coach and is a broadcaster of Dodgers games. He is about to release his autobiography, Bring in the Right_Hander!
