After retiring from teaching in 2007, Joel Levin took on a project paying homage to his first career as a ballpark vendor, which he did from 1962-1976. Together with co-author and amateur photographer Lloyd Rutzky, he has written Wrigley Field’s Amazing Vendors, a book that shares photographs and stories of the unique cast of characters that sold goods at Wrigley Field during the 1970s.
