Format: Hardcover
This is one of those rare books that appeals to both children and adults alike. My son loves the book for the mascots and colorful illustrations, and I love the book because I have learned so much about the MLB teams. I would highly recommend this book to any baseball fan -- die-hard or casual -- with (or without) children!

Format: Hardcover
Trolley Dodgers, Pinstriped Yankees, and Wearing Red Sox. A slim book that is written in language that even the youngest baseball can read and understand. The art work is exceptional, the facts entertaining and interesting. Want to know how many All Star games Stan Musial was in? Just one of the facts you can learn about when going to the page on the St. Louis Cardinals. All teams have just as many interesting tid bits including who Baxter the Bobcat is. So buy the book and find out how and why teams got those names.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a treasure trove of information on how all the teams got their mascots and names. Its a pictorial history for each of the major league teams, and can be enjoyed by young and old. My 4 year old loves learning about the other teams in the MLB, while my 2 year old loves seeing the random mascots that he never sees. It is the perfect gift for any child 2 and up (trust me ... when you are looking for a gift for a kids birthday party - this is it.)

Great read! Loved this more than my 4 year old! (OK maybe about the same)
Just a really clever way to learn about some not-so-well-known facts about the MLB & their mascots.

I bought this book for my grandson, a budding baseball fan. He loves the pictures and I love reading it to him. I've learned plenty of interesting facts about baseball too!

I was pleasently surprised to see my two year-old son so interested in this book-great illustration! I learned a thing or two along the way. Let's go Mets!
