KIRKUS REVIEW

A book that has caught the spirit of baseball from its early days, full of the outstanding personalities, teams, events that have helped make baseball America's most popular sport. Thumbnail sketches of the great, Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Christy Mathewson, Radbourne, Waddell, Hal Chase, etc. and many others who have made millions of fans. From strikeouts to bonehead plays, this has a lot of famous past history which will be remembered as long as baseball is a favorite game to see and read about, although none of the material is original and much of it is familiar.
