"Baseball fans everywhere, and especially those of you who have supported Cardinal baseball through the years, will be delighted by The Cardinals Encyclopedia. This book is one of the most comprehensive and best-researched chronicles of St. Louis Cardinals history ever printed--and it's exciting to read." --Stan Musial, from the Foreword "Anyone who is a Cardinals fan has to have this book. And if you're not a Cardinals fan, after you read this book, you will be." --Mike Shannon, Cardinals broadcaster (KMOX) and former player
From the Publisher
Photos, memorabilia, and the most comprehensive and detailed account of Redbird baseball history
First, a disclaimer: I am a fellow member of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch sports staff with Mike Eisenbath, the book's author. Second, a disclaimer of the disclaimer: Anyone who knows me knows that I have never hesistated to criticize a fellow staff member. On to the review: Here are five good reasons ANY baseball fan would enjoy this book: (1) It's a terrific reference book. Even if you hate the Cardinals (I think they call those people Cub fans or something like that), you have to admit that the Cardinals have been a big part of baseball history with their numerous pennant winning teams and many great Hall of Famers. (2) If you are a Cardinal fan, the book will bring back a lot of pleasant memories and a few unpleasant ones. (I've learned NOT to mention the 1968 or 1985 World Series around rabid Cardinal fans.) (3) The 200 player profiles alone are worth the price of the book. In this chapter you can recall the exploits of such Cardinal greats as Stan Musial, Enos Slaughter, Bob Gibson, Lou Brock and Roger Freed. (4) If baseball trivia is your thing, you can pick up all kinds of good stuff browsing and reading this book. (5) If you want to impress your friends with what a great baseball expert you are, you can memorize this book in your spare time and impress your friends. You can't go wrong buying this book.
