The book's a chronicle of the first season of Midland, Michigan's, minor league baseball team, the Great Lakes Loons. It was produced by the Midland Daily News.

This is a very pretty package, with some very fine photographs, but the text consists of transcribed newspaper articles, none of which are dated. The result is neither thorough nor coherent. The book really could have used some serious editing. For instance, two articles are repeated word-for-word; in both cases they're just a few pages apart. I really expected better.

Worth purchasing as a souvenir, though it's pretty pricey. Except for the packaging (and price), it's really very typical of the Our Team's First Season genre, few of which aspire to seriousness.

This review has also been published on a dabbler's journal. ( )
