Interesting, but lost focus at times
on June 22, 2013
Great detail on a topic that is an important part of baseball's history, but not often written about. I wanted to rate this book higher but there were three things that held it back: (1) After 150 pages of great material, there was a nearly 20 page chapter that repeated the highlights of the first 150 pages. Totally unnecessary, absolutely nothing new. (2) The book was poorly edited. Lots of errors ... the kind that don't get caught by spellcheck ... and some mixing up of names. (3) The book strayed off topic sometimes into related and interesting areas, but the connection back to their impact on expansion was kind of sketchy.
Still recommended as the subject, particularly the early expansion years, was well covered
