Format: Hardcover
this book carries you on a city by city tour of professional baseball in N. C. Once the capital of minor league professional baseball (in the forties) N. C,fans saw the early careers of hundreds of future major leaguers Eddie Mathews, Richard Culler, Hoyt Wilhelm, Billy Goodman, the real Crash Davis ( not the character in Bull Durham) and hundreds more. The photographs are vintage. Any baseball fan that is interested in the history of minor league baseball will find a gold mine not only about the players but also community leaders and the efforts they made to keep minor league baseball alive. The book is in good readable form and baseball fans, social and cultural historians will find it enlightning as well as enjoyable
