1st American ed.
With hundreds of illustrations, this comprehensive, thoroughly researched, and compulsively readable record of baseball's greatest moments and seasonal events is sure to stimulate the memories and fantasies of much of American-and serve as an invaluable reference and argument-settler. Baseball has never been chronicled they way this timeline works. It covers every great moment in baseball, along with the colorful people, events, quotations, turning points, scandals, comic moments, and nostalgia of the national sport. Unlike any other baseball book, The Baseball Timeline is a day-by-day, year-by-year account of what happened throughout the baseball world. Every significant event is chronicled with just the level of detail fans want. In addition to individual feats, entries include landmark pennant races, important trades, disputes (on and off the field), famous firsts and lasts, franchise shifts, the openings of new ball parks, and even details of the last game played at stadiums scheduled for demolition. Keep The Baseball Timeline by the TV; let it stand as a home reference that provides nostalgic memories, "the last word" in disputes, or the one place to ensure that you know what really happened. It is a baseball fan's paradise for sidelights, trivia, nostalgia, color, and "I never knew that!" information. Lively text invites readers in for an exciting tour of the past beginning with its possible origins as an Native American game and continuing on through the first season of the new millennium.
