From the Author:

Hi.

Knickerbockers and Athletics?  BASEBALL TEAM NAMES, starting with the professional baseball era, covers the names and their origins of every professional baseball team in every league, for every season, in every country from 1869 through the 2012 season.  Thank you for your interest in BASEBALL TEAM NAMES.

Every effort has been made to keep FACTUAL and SPELLING / GRAMMATICAL errors to a minimum.  McFarland & Co. Publishers and the author are working hard to track down any factual, spelling or grammatical errors.  CORRECTION of errors - of which there are less than 20 - is ongoing and will be completed by August 20, 2013.

Book Description McFarland Publishing. Condition: BRAND NEW. BRAND NEW Full Sized Laminated Softcover - 416pp - appendices, bibliography, index - Professional baseball is full of arcane team names. The Los Angeles Dodgers, for instance, owe their nickname to the trolley tracks that honeycombed Brooklyn in the early 1880s. (Residents were "trolley dodgers.") From the Negro Leagues, there were the Pittsburgh Crawfords (sponsored early by the Crawford Bath House and Recreation Center); from the minors, the Tucson Waddies (slang for cowboy) and, later, the Montgomery Biscuits (for the would-be concessions staple); from overseas, the Adelaide, Australia, Bite (a shark reference but also a pun for bight) and the Bussum, Netherlands, Mr. Cocker HCAW (the sponsoring restaurant chain, followed by the acronym for the official team name, Honkbalclub Allan Weerbaar). This comprehensive reference book explains the nicknames of thousands of major and minor league franchises, Negro League and early independent black clubs, and international teams--from 1869 through 2011. A Brand New Quality Book from a Full-Time Veteran Owned Bookshop in business since 1992!. Seller Inventory # 2779939
