Editorial Reviews

Review

"It seems like the entire history of baseball is packed into this one book - and without a wasted word. It's tremendously enjoyable - the perfect companion."
- Jim Bouton, former New York Yankees Pitcher and author of Ball Four.

"Written for the casual and passionate fan alike, The Cambridge Companion to Baseball acknowledges baseball's two pasts and lays out a rich cultural, historical and sociological record of the national pastime."
-Miles Doyle, FCRH '01, FORDHAM

"The Cambridge Companion to baseball is more hit than miss, however, and there is something in this book that will satisfy everyone - from the baseball novice to the lifelong student of the game."
--Canadian Journal of History/Annales

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic book. A must have for fans of baseball beyond the diamond. I'm teaching a baseball-themed writing course and this is one of my go-to books for well-written essays on baseball's cultural impact on American society.

Consummate, well-researched, and well thought out, but it is nothing compared to BASEBALL IN THE GARDEN for the early years.
