Product Overview

One of the great bards of Americas Grand Old Game gives a rousing account of baseball, from its pre-Republic roots to the present day. Vecsey casts a fresh eye on the sport, illuminates its foibles and triumphs, and makes a classic story seem refreshingly new. This book is a narrative of Americas can-do spirit, in which stalwart immigrants could transplant cricket and rounders in the fertile American culture and die-hard unionist players could later become the tightfisted avatars of the games big-money establishment. Its a celebration of champions and underdogs. But most of all, it is a testament to the unbreakable bond between our nations pastime and the fans, whove remained loyal through the fifty-year-long interdict on black athletes, the Black Sox scandal, franchise relocation, and the use of performance-enhancing drugs by some major stars.--From publisher description. *Author: Vecsey, George *Series Title: Modern Library Chronicles *Subtitle: A History of Americas Favorite Game *Publication Date: 2008/03/11 *Number of Pages: 252 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 0.75 *Width: 5.00 *Height: 7.75
