Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

In Florida you can see major league baseball form April through September in Miami and Tampa Bay, spring training games throughout central Florida in March, minor leagues ball in the spring and fall at over a dozen Florida sites, college baseball throughout the spring in dozens of towns, and high school and organized youth leagues throughout the year in hundreds of towns all over the state.

More than a million fans a year attend the minor league games of the Florida State League in hopes of seeing the next Al Lopez, Stan Musial, or Early Wynn, just a few of the ball players who played here and then went on to make the Hall of Fame.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book was helpful for what I was looking for but not completely. The biggest drawback was it was dated in that it was published in the late 90's. I knew that when I purchased it so not blaming the book for that, just that alot more has transpired in regard to Florida and baseball since then.

It was decent and I certainly benefited from its content so all in all a good purchase for what I needed.

Interesting facts and data from the early days to the present. I enjoyed the photographs of the many baseball greats.
