Allison Mast, HART major who graduated in May with a bachelor of arts degree, has written an article about stadiums and their designs and how they have assumed an increasingly important role in the popularity and sustainability of the sport. She collaborated with Kevin Murphy, chair of the history of art department, on the article, “Stadium design: baseball’s saving grace?,” which was published in The Conversation on July 29.
Prior to graduation, Mast completed a thesis on the architecture of baseball parks, with an emphasis on Camden Yards, Petco Park, and Marlins Park. In addition to pursuing a master’s degree in sports management at the University of San Francisco, she is working on a book that explores the unique features of Major League ballparks.
