Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This isn't a comprehensive history of Texas baseball, or even of the Texas League. As the "greatest hits" phrase in the subtitle and mention of "episodic chapters" in the description might suggest, this is instead a collection of short, readable chapters about some of the milestone events and memorable characters in the history of the league. It makes for fun dipping-into for bedside reading or, maybe, during commercials or between innings. It gets a little bewildering trying to keep track of team names and league arrangements (the "Complete list of Texas League teams [1902-]" list on Wikipedia is impressively long, and this book goes back well before 1902), but as a print equivalent of just sitting around and telling baseball stories, this book definitely has something to offer the Texas baseball fan, or the fan of Texas baseball.
