"Here's a book that was long overdue. After all, no National League team can fully match the rich baseball history and tradition of the Dodgers.... Personally, I think there is need for separate encyclopedias for the Brooklyn and Los Angeles franchises. There is certainly enough material to fill up an encyclopedia on each.... Without a doubt, The Dodgers Encyclopedia can take its rightful place as one of the best team encyclopedias on the market." -- WWCD SPORTS BOOK REVIEWS Dan Albaugh
<br /><br />The beat goes on in the publishing of team encyclopedias. Sagamore Publishing, using the title Sports Publishing, adds its annual addition to the genre with The Dodgers Encyclopedia. The opening chapter traces Dodger history from the misty beginnings of the team in rural Brooklyn through the following 140 years of baseball in Brooklyn and Los Angeles. Famous Dodger managers, legendary executives, sportscasters, no-hit ballgames, and the ballparks - from Capitolineto Chavez, all receive full chapter attention. --Sports Collectors Digest February 27, 1998 Richard Miller
