To Every Thing a Season
Shibe Park and Urban Philadelphia, 1909-1976
Bruce Kuklick


Shibe Park was demolished in 1976, and today its site is surrounded by the devastation of North Philadelphia. Kuklick, however, vividly evokes the feelings people had about the home of the Philadelphia Athletics and later the Phillies.

Bruce Kuklick is Killebrew Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania.
