The book did not highlight anything new to those of us that are baseball fans. A few interesting stories but overall not a great read. Bottom line is I didn't learn anything new :-(.

This is a fantastic little read. It will remind you of "Tuesdays with Morrie". If you are 50+ years of age and a baseball fan.........it is a must read. you may laugh, or you may cry, but you will be moved.

I purchased two copies of this book for my nephews who are both baseball fanatics. It is a beautifully designed and written book with a lot of information about some of the little-known aspects of baseball history. Please note that this book is not intended to be a comprehensive look at everything baseball - it is based on material drawn from the Library of Congress' extensive collection but there may be some players or events that are not covered. There are other books available if that's what you want. But this book contains so much information and interesting artwork that even most hardcore baseball fans will learn something.

Great book for young and old alike. Has tons of pictures of equipment, players, etc from way back to the present and descriptions and information to go along with it all. Couldn't touch the Overstock price anywhere else and book arrived quickly and in perfect condition. Great to do business with.

Just the title hooks you. This true story is easy to read and a delight for everyone. Boys will enjoy the baseball element and girls will enjoy the main character and her dominance in baseball - not softball. I loved it!!
