-Green Cathedrals


Building on his earlier work of the same title, Lowry identifies hundreds of other stadiums that hosted professional baseball games. While Lowry previously included stadiums used by Negro League teams, in this work he gives these team equal standing with their racially segregated counterparts. Published in 2006, this work has already become outdated with the continuous demolition and construction of baseball stadiums. As a member of SABR, Lowry explicitly produced this work to better understand the statistical history of baseball.
