Review:

“[A]n informative title that should be a hit among sports-minded readers.” —School Library Journal

“[The book] offers a fascinating look at baseball’s complex and fascinating transformation into a professional sport that is now played all over the world.” —Idaho Dad

“If you have a young baseball fan it would be a great addition to their library.” —The O.W.L.

"We've enjoyed previous attempts at making [baseball] books large and splashy, full of photos and graphics...[but] we'll give the slight edge here to Panchyk for his implicit attempt to get the reader to do more than just read." —Farther Off the Wall, part of The Los Angeles Daily News

"Panchyk laces the bright, readable book with enough offbeat content that grown-up fans will learn a thing or two, too, in a book that pulls no punches." —Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Baseball History for Kids is as perfect a book on the game ... as you can get.” —Daddy Mojo

"A fascinating panorama of higlights of baseball history." —The Midwest Book Review
