Philip Lowry chose the title Green Cathedrals for his book on the baseball parks of America because of the religious devotion that baseball fans seem to bring to the sport, and the majesty of many of these parks, especially the older ones. Over the past summer my wife and I had the good fortune to visit three parks, representing three distinctly different eras in baseball history.
