The Biographical History of Baseball
by Donald Dewey
No current Talk conversations about this book.
"This authoritative, over-sized biographical history of our national pastime offers original summaries of the personalities and contributions of over 1,500 players, managers, owners, front office executives, journalist/writers, and fans to the development and enjoyment of baseball: each individual included has had an impact on the sport as a mass entertainment or a cultural phenomenon, as an athletic art or a business franchise." "This comprehensive volume of the who's who of baseball covers the game's outlaws, clowns, thieves, and hustlers - on and off the field - as well as statistics and engaging facts on every key player in history: Hall of Famers from Ty Cobb to Mike Schmidt, records holders from Cy Young to Anthony Young, heroic performances from Zip Zabel to Joe Carter." "By using the individuals involved to retell every major moment in baseball's grand legacy, The Biographical History of Baseball provides a fascinating, personalized narrative which leads the reader through the detailed highlights of America's grandest sport."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
