PhD Candidate Hardesty Publishes in Maryland Historical Magazine

Svf b oriole stadium 1938

The Spring/Summer 2017 issue of Maryland Historical Magazine prints Richard Hardesty's essay, "Lost City: The Burning of Oriole Park," which argues that the reaction to the 1944 destruction of Baltimore's minor league ballpark helped demonstrate the city's ability to support a major league team. The essay originally appeared in 2014 on Underbelly (http://www.mdhs.org/underbelly/2014/10/02/lost-city-the-burning-of-oriole-park/), a blog produced by the Maryland Historical Society Library. 

Hardesty is writing a dissertation about the relationship between the Orioles and their home city.
