First of all let me start with a Pittsfield Massachusetts. Can you let everybody know since that's kind of the heart of this book and story. Can you describe it for everybody. where it is is one? It's like what type of town is what baseball means to that town. It's field as as a blue collar town of about fifty thousand people in the heart of the Berkshire Mountains <hes> which is <hes> very <hes> very cultural area in in <hes> in western Massachusetts <hes> it's a town that's <hes> border north and south by <hes> towns that are booming <hes> because of the tourist attractions that they have all the Cultural Cultural Events Tanglewood Jacob's pillow Shakespeare and company etc but <hes> but these these events <hes> the people that come to this part of the country to attend those cultural events generally go past Pittsfield <hes> so the carrying all around Pittsfield but not in Pittsfield pittsfield claim to fame was its Ballpark Cona Park and it's a baseball tradition baseball has been played at the park since eighteen ninety two. It has one of the oldest ballparks in America. It's one of the last of the wooden ballparks and <hes> and that's the story of Pittsfield you know it was once a G._e.. Town <hes> was the headquarters of their transformer division <hes> G._e.. Once employed Loyd of thousands of people <hes> the population of the town has dropped from about sixty five thousand down to about forty five thousand now in the town struggles to move past its industrial base to a more service economy economy sometimes when people write about towns. It's from the outside looking in but that's not the case with you Jim. You and Paula lived there. How long have you lived in Pittsfield or we've we've lived <hes> in South Berkshire County about a half an hour south of Pittsfield okay <hes> for the last ten years and <hes> and so has my partner <hes> chippy litter and <hes> we were we were we had the idea to save this old ballpark up in Pittsfield which was being threatened with abandonment right by the building of a new baseball stadium in the center of town foul ball with the subtitle of my life and hard times trying to save an old ballpark is the name of the new book from Jim Bowden? Let's talk about what Cona Park a hundred and eleven years old the longest surviving minor league park in America. Take us on sight sound and smell tour of what Kinda Park well. It's <hes> it's <hes> it's ranked as one of the top baseball viewing experiences in the country and this includes major and minor league stand May <hes> fields <hes> it's called <hes> a great baseball cathedral are Rockwell esque <hes> step back in time and it is a step back in time. It's <hes> you know you walk. Walk into the Ballpark and you feel like you could be back in the nineteen twenties. The stands are very close to the field <hes> it's <hes> as I said it's a wooden ballpark and <hes> they are <hes> a couple of stuff AL's hanging hanging from the rafters to ward off pigeons <hes> it's it's just a it's a fun. It's a very cozy place. <hes> your you almost WanNa just spend the whole day there. What level of baseball is played there well over the years <hes> Ron? It's been several different levels. <hes> mostly Class A baseball but <hes> there were a number of years where it was a AA <hes> AA team in the eastern League <hes> a for the last ten years it had been affiliated Baseball Class A affiliated baseball. It was the home of the Pittsfield mets whose owner then wanted to move to a new baseball stadium in nearby Troy New York and so the citizens of Pittsfield were we're faced with what I call America's most costly hostage crisis you know this a new stadium or you'll never see your team again and this is of course happening all across the country in small towns and big towns and <hes>. It's a you you know it's it's just an outrage and <hes> our plan for Saving Cona Park was that we would invest money our own private <hes> investor money in in renovating the old ballpark and what's more we would buy a team team in the independent Northern League. That's another league that plays in the area this is I guess equivalent to doubly baseball. It's not affiliated with Major League Baseball but these are independent teams and we were going to buy a team in this league and sell stock to the people of Pittsfield and the surrounding area so that Pittsfield would have a locally owned ball team and its own restored Ballpark <hes> and then they could never be threatened with <hes> losing their team if they didn't build a new stadium Gee gee what a novel idea and it makes all the sense in the world but but what made too much <hes> we were opposed by a small group of willful powerful people in town <hes> <hes> I call them the gang of four local newspaper the Berkshire Eagle Berkshire Bank the largest law firm in town Kane Hibbard Myers and cook and General Electric who is still the largest employer in town and these are the people who run the community. They wanted to build a new baseball stadium on property owned coincidentally by the newspaper <hes> and of course <hes> if this happened the old ballpark would just <hes> rot away because the city didn't have enough money need to keep it up. It's nine million dollars in debt and it's <hes> finances are being financials are being over or being supervised by State Oversight Board so this is the city that could use all the help it can get. We came forward Lorde with an idea. They couldn't refuse and they refused it. Yeah the quote was the only people who didn't like it. Where the mayor the mayor's handpicked parks commissioners a majority of the city council the only daily newspaper in town the city's largest bank? It's most powerful law firm and a guy from General Electric everyone else or approximately ninety four percent of the citizens of Pittsfield Massachusetts loved it. Why doesn't the majority speak in this case well because for a very simple reason we don't have democracy in Pittsfield and <hes> I'm beginning to wonder if we have it in in to very many other towns in this country? You know this issue of stadium. A new stadium is something that the tax payers pittsfield voted against three different in times and they still couldn't kill this idea <hes> and this is happening in different towns around the country where tax payers citizens vote against new stadiums and yet they're forced to to have them because <hes> powerful people in town. Make sure at these stadiums get built so they're they're usually pushed through <hes> by lame duck mayors and <hes> you know City Council's Obscure Obscure Committee chairman etc and it did very hard to kill these new stadiums with the powerful groups that are behind them but taxpayer dollars are the ones that build the stadiums and as I understand it you had to deal with threats conspiracy toxic waste slanted journalism in a city government that operates rates out of a bar I was interested in the last one bar in in <hes> in Pittsfield Colle Delle gallows and this is where this is where the major decisions are made <hes> and it's not just me saying that <hes> a couple a couple of city councilman said that's where the decisions are made and I said to a state Senator Andy Nusa Farro. I said Andy I said. Are you aware that the decisions in Pittsfield are being made at a bar he said I know that so so that's just a that's part of the fun on the nonsense of the whole thing you know I just couldn't believe <hes> they had the situation here most importantly I think the most powerful force in town was the newspaper This property this this baseball stadium was going to be built on property that they owned in the center of town <hes> and <hes> I said to a city councilman <hes> or city councilman said to me that they couldn't consider our proposal the proposal of my partner partner and I couldn't consider it until they were released by the publisher of the local newspaper who was guy by the name of Andy Mic so I went to Andy Mic and I said Andy the city council says that <hes> that <hes> that they can't consider proposal until you you release them. He says well. I can't do anything until you talk to my boss and Denver Colorado that's Dean Singleton head of the Media News Group chain that owns the Berkshire Eagle so here with the people of Pittsfield with almost a hundred year the tradition of baseball <hes> and and the the legacy of of the sport is now in the hands of a guy in Denver Colorado. It's at that point. I decided I'd better start taking notes. Jim Belton has joined us. He has a wonderful new book out called Foul Ball My life and hard times trying to save an old ballpark and then old ballpark is in Pittsfield Massachusetts one hundred eleven years old the longest surviving Minor League Park in America Will Cona Park. We'll talk more about this wonderful wonderful book and I urge everybody to read it..
