Our favorite Ballpark Links:
Baseballparks.com - Joe Mock's incredibly informative website takes us on a journey through Major and Minor League Baseball. Baseball Trivia, Top Ten Lists, interesting facts and quirks about your favorite ballparks that you may never have known before, and hundreds of photos complete one of our favorite sites. We've seen quite a few games together with Joe and he is a wonderful ballpark historian with much to share.
Minorleagueballparks.com - Gary Jarvis' full website featuring hundreds of hi-res photographs of ballparks from all over the United States. Gary is one of the first to start posting photos of ballparks online and one of the three people we've been following for years before we began doing this ourselves (The other two are listed below this). Many of Gary's photographs of ballparks that have since been demolished appear on Digitalballparks, as he has donated many of his best photographs to us.
Ballparks, Arenas & Stadiums - Bob Busser has attended over 500 stadiums (and not just baseball!), over the past two decades. He has finally decided to reveal his work to all of us with this all new website. We recommend it highly, as there are hundreds of photographs of every ballpark and football stadium and hockey arena that he has. With sometimes as much as a hundred photographs of just one particular stadium... It is as thorough as could be, and we look forward to featuring a few of his exhibits right here on digitalballparks as well. Make sure you check this one out, and make sure you plan some time... lots to look at on here!
Charlie "Zeb" - Charlie is documenting his experiences of attending a game at every Major and Minor League Ballpark, and is photographing each of them all along the way. Charlie now has well over 400 ballparks online and continues in his quest to see a game at every pro ballpark. Even though we don't "check in" with each other before going on our separate trips, we always manage to bump into each other thoughout each season.
Ballparkreviews.com - Brian Merzbach - The last of our those we have "apprenticed from". We've been following Brian's work since the 1990's online and he continues to be in the forefront of ballpark photography. With well over 400 ballparks now online, Brian is one of the websites we most visit ourselves. His photography has excelled in recent years and his website is tremendously informative.
Gibbs Ballpark Pages - Lee Gibbs is determined to see every ballpark ever and this is his documented quest. Gibbs is one of the nicest people we've ever talked to and we even have some of his photos on this website. Check out the Mankato Mets photographs, as he's donated pictures of the stadium before recent renovations. Lots of photographs of collegiate ballparks on this sight as well!
Small-parks.com - Jeff LaCrone started out photographing the ballparks of the Eastern League, and has since expanded out throughout the United States, as he caught the ballpark bug (once you get it, you can't get rid of it!) LaCrone's website has some particularly large photographs and is very thorough in capturing the important angles of a stadium. Highly recommended.
Little Ballparks - Paul Crumlish was one of the rookies a few years back who we thought would become one of the better photographers out there. He has since passed many in the number of parks he's photographed and the quality of his photos, which are some of the highest resolution now online. Paul's take on how a stadium should be photographed and displayed is very similar to our own ideas, so we believe very much in the quality of Paul's pictures.
Tim Perry's Frontier League Web Pages - Tim Perry is a former adjunct photographer for Digitalballparks and has gone on to found his own website which deals with every stadium, stat, player and complete history of the independent Frontier League. Since the Frontier League has now won 2 DigitalBallparks of the Year Awards, we consider them to be a very important league, and Tim Perry's website to be a very important site. For you stadium-heads... don't worry... there's plenty of photographs of every Frontier League ballpark in history. Remember... he was once a part of this website too! He goes into so much more depth however on this league than we ever could here. Great stuff.
Nebraska Minor League Baseball - Bruce Esser's website focuses on the specific ballparks of Nebraska, and the old Nebraska State League. He's uncovered many ballparks past and present that have made an impact on Minor League Baseball... and Nebraska has some of the best. There's old WPA ballparks that never made it to the Minor League circuit, but are truly amazing... that we didn't even know about. The pictures are all on this website, which you should definately stop and visit.
The Complete Minor League Baseball History - Ever wonder how we know so much of what team played where and then moved to which city and was followed up by which team? Which league was Class A or C or D? Which teams played in the International League or the Florida Georgia League? Every single Minor League team EVER in the history of baseball is here, color coded with it's Major League affiliate in this remarkably concise and accurate website which we reference over and over again. "Big Bunko" spent months of his life creating this index of hundreds and hundreds of old and current Minor League systems. The information here is just fantastic and we can't tell you how often we find ourselves referring to it for information.
David McCann - At only 22 years old, David is the perhaps the newest and youngest ballpark junkie, edging out our Wendy (of digitalballparks) who had now gives up that title. (Oh we do love corrupting the youth of America). David has a new website that is growing quickly as he is attempting to see as many stadiums as possible. We would love for you to help David lose his way, spiraling downwards into complete stadium addiction (as many of us freaks have already), by clicking on this link. One of us... one of us...
