About this title


Home Field Advantage is a sports history book by Paul Brekke-Miesner that investigates why one relatively small American city produced an amazing number of professional athletes. Through interviews, historic photographs and a keen sense of place, Brekke-Miesner weaves history and circumstance into a book any fan of sports or history would want to read. Referencing over two hundred athletes, the author also shows how race, class, world wars and geography conspired to produce several athletes who literally changed the face of American sports. What do sports luminaries Bill Russell, Rickey Henderson, Gary Payton, Jason Kidd, Frank Robinson, Ernie Lombardi, Zoe Ann Olsen, Joe Morgan, Don Budge, Tony Lema, Jim Hines, Marshawn Lynch, John Brodie, Jackie Jensen, Vada Pinson, Jim Pollard, Rod Dedeaux and Curt Flood all have in common? They were raised in Oakland, California.
