Baseball From A Historian's Point Of View
on March 21, 2016
This book is written by a history professor. But it is not dry or boring--not by a long shot. Jules Tygiel writes with lucid and energetic prose. He looks at how baseball and the country grew up together, from the 1850's to the year 2000, when the book was published. This is a very unique take on the National Pastime. It is a highly intelligent but also highly accessible book that should prove to be highly enjoyable to those who have an interest in baseball history.
