9780394576084: Stolen Season: A Journey Through America and Baseball's Minor Leagues

An inside study of minor league baseball provides a portrait of the small cities and towns that house the teams and the colorful people--players, owners, coaches, and fans--who contribute to the baseball legend

From Publishers Weekly:

At 14, Lamb wrote a series of stories about the Milwaukee Braves, geographically distant successors to his beloved Boston Braves; the stories appeared in the Milwaukee Journal and helped clinch the author's fascination with baseball. He went on to become a foreign correspondent with the Los Angeles Times and an author ( The Africans ; The Arabs ), and in 1989 decided to tour the nation's 15 minor leagues. This workmanlike book is the result. Lamb concerns himself with the franchises, the owners, stadiums past and present, relations between clubs and the major league teams that subsidize most of them, managers and coaches and, too infrequently, with the players themselves. He is capable of superb writing, as in an eloquent encomium to the Middle West, but does not sustain this level throughout. Photos not seen by PW.

From Library Journal:

After visiting Arizona training camps, the author of The Africans ( LJ 3/1/83) takes a motor home tour of the minor leagues. He makes a road trip with the Stockton Ports, then travels through such "lower league" towns as El Paso, Texas, Elmira, New York, and Salt Lake City, Utah. Along the way he visits with ex-big leaguers Warren Spahn and "Hurricane" Hazle. Serviceable nostalgia and local color that will complement large sports collections.
