About this title


Baseball is a game we first play as children, but love for all of our lives. This book takes you on a visual journey through the history of baseball, using more than 700 historic, evocative, emotional, and colorful photographs that bring to life the faces, places, moments, and memories that have made the game America's National Pastime. Celebrate the game with everyone from the greatest Major League stars to the youngest sandlot players. Relive the march of memories that have given baseball its constant sense of nostalgia, even as every day brings new thrills to the diamonds of the world. Baseball: A Celebration! spans the entire history of the game, from its earliest days on rough fields drawn up by determined sportsmen through the heady days of the early pro game; from the Golden Age of Babe Ruth to the magic time when New York City was the center of the baseball universe; through the color and flash of the 1960s, all the way to the sky-high home runs of Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, and other stars of today. Featuring photographs drawn from the world's greatest repositories of baseball imagery, including Major League Baseball Photos and the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and fact-filled narrative commentary on each photograph by veteran sportswriters James Buckley, Jr., and Jim Gigliotti, Baseball! A Celebration takes you out to the ballgame, page after glorious page.
