9780002157315: Baseball in America: From Sandlots to Stadiums, a Portrait of Our National Passion by 50 of Today's Leading Photographers

Take 50 or so of America's top photographers. Send them out across the nation for the better part of a year. And ask them to bring back the biggest American story of all - the story of baseball. The result: "Baseball in America" from Collins Publishers. From little dramas played out on small-town sandlots to great battles between the heavy hitters in big-city ballparks, this engaging photo album vividly illustrates the grand sweep and universal appeal of the national pastime. It's all here: the magic of an everyday Little League game, the frenzy of the bleachers at Yankee Stadium, the exhaustion of the team bus deep in the minor leagues. Included are unexpected portraits of subjects ranging from fantasy camps and umpire schools to stickball competitions and octogenarian contests as well. A natural for baseball enthusiasts and mainstream readers alike, "Baseball in America" takes a spirited look at how the sport and its values weave through the very fabric of American life.
