As a born and raised Brooklyn Dodger fan... with parents that made the lovable "Bums" part of my everyday life... and whom to this day I say that my Mother (let alone my Father) knew more about the Dodgers and baseball than anyone else in my neighborhood. I bought this book about seven months ago and never finished it completely till now. During this period I did read and complete about twenty other books. Why you may ask? Aaah... well here's why I addressed the problem of describing this as more of an encyclopedia than a book. First of all for an old-time-old-school... not only Brooklyn Dodger... but an any team old-school-baseball fanatic... as interesting as each short biographical story was on each player... each player's story ended much like an extra-large baseball card might end. In other words... it ended... and then another player with no continuing story or saga tied to the end of the prior player began. So in essence that's why I have gone to the detail I have to give it a separate rating as a book AND as an encyclopedia.Read more ›

It is a very interesting book that I find hard to read as it has been picked up and put down many times without finishing it. Read morePublished on February 24, 2013 by melalbert
