Praise For Baseball Americana: Treasures from the Library of Congress…
“Totally intriguing … traces the glory of our national pastime over more than two centuries. … All this material and so much more could fill a whole bunch of postseason evenings while today’s knickered lads cavort until midnight and beyond.”
“One of the most seductively designed books about the sport to come our way. … A book like this, so rich and deep in material. … brings baseball history to multifaceted life and reminds us that baseball is the sport that celebrates its history more than any other. … This book itself is a form of time-traveling — a pleasurable, often surprising and aesthetic trip.”
