Description
Cultural Writing. With more than 150 photographs of vintage and modern ballplayers and scenes, THE GOLDEN GAME is not only a richly illustrated and lively read, but also a well-researched reference work that will delight baseball fans and anyone who loves a good story. Kevin Nelson, author of over a dozen books on sports, presents a history of baseball, from sandlot ball in the 1850s to the coming of the Dodgers, Giants, Angels, Athletics, and Padres. Here is a stirring, colorfully written narrative about the state that has been the birthplace and proving ground for more major leaguers than any other.
