 Who would have thought that a war could help increase the popularity of a sport. During the Civil War union soldiers from New York took their game with them when they went to war and many soldiers even played the game in prisoner of war camps. Baseball is indeed an American institution, and one that we can be proud of. Fans hope that a new 'golden age' of baseball is in the offing. In the meantime we can browse through the pages of this fact-packed, interesting book.
  Full of full-color photographs of great players, scenes from games past, and memorabilia, there are many hours of interesting reading to look forward to between its covers. A variety of topics about baseball are discussed, including the story of the brief but inspirational reign of women's baseball teams during WWII. Then there is the history of the Negro Leagues, ballparks, the Baseball Hall of Fame, and the World Series. For an all-inclusive look at "The American Pastime", this Dorling Kindersley 'Eyewitness' book is a must for anyone interested in baseball.
