According to Mead ( Two Spectacular Seasons, LJ 2/1/90) and Dickson ( Paul Dickson's Baseball Dictionary, LJ 3/15/89), every U.S. President except Rutherford B. Hayes had a connection with baseball or one of the earlier versions of the game. The authors assert that both George Washington and Abraham Lincoln played some form of the game. They also detail the associations of later chief executives, in the form of playing, attending opening games, etc. The authors even include Richard Nixon's all-star picks. This picture-packed collection of White House anecdotes is fun reading. Recommended for most sports collections.- Morey Berger, St. Joseph's Hosp. Medical Lib., Tucson
