This is a dry retelling of baseball's history. It's more like listening to an old guy babble on at the bar than listening to an expert relate history. I wanted to learn more about baseball, not more about how the author thinks baseball was so much better in the old days.

Fabulous retelling of baseball's creation and history. For me, this is the first time I am hearing most all of these stories dating back to the mid 1800s...and I'm a sports junkie. I thought this purchase was a risk...not so at all. I'm shocked at the number of stories with which I was previously unfamiliar. This is a great time-travel trip into the teams, players and businessmen that helped put baseball on the map and up through more modern day lore. Some things have not changed about baseball....you be the judge. One thing to note...the reader is not stellar, but the content more than makes up for his lack of flair.
I've seen some unfavorable reviews of this books pointing towards the lack of baseball strategy covered. READ THE DESCRIPTION. That is not what this purported to accomplish.
