"This is a remarkable book. Bob Buege does a magnificent job in recreating the baseball environment as it used to be, long before domed stadiums and luxury suites. For those of us who grew up in Milwaukee during those heady days, Borchert Field was our field of dreams."
- Allan H. (Bud) Selig, Major League Baseball Commissioner, 1998-2015
"Baseball guru Bob Buege has brought a ghost back to life. Borchert Field was shoehorned into a single block on Milwaukee's North Side, but it meant baseball -- and a great deal more - to generations of Cream City residents. Story by story, even inning by inning, Buege brings Borchert back with a scholar's attention to detail and a true fan's contagious love of the game."
- John Gurda, Milwaukee historian and author
"Borchert Field is long gone, but Bob Buege has brought the rickety old stadium in a Milwaukee orchard field vividly back to life. Mantle, Mays, Durocher, Stengel, Thorpe, Nevins—so many of the great names of American sports visited this modest little place and weave through the storyline of this fascinating book."
- David Maraniss, author of When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi
