    Best-selling author George Vecsey is an esteemed and award-winning sports journalist for the New York Times. In Baseball, he recounts the history of America's national pastime. Baseball has been around in various forms for thousands of years, but only within the last 200 years has it become an American institution. Growing from a sport played in open fields and big-city streets, baseball has seen its share of innovators and detractors, heroes and villains.

    Fabulous retelling of baseball's creation and history. For me, this is the first time I am hearing most all of these stories dating back to the mid 1800s...and I'm a sports junkie. I thought this purchase was a risk...not so at all. I'm shocked at the number of stories with which I was previously unfamiliar. This is a great time-travel trip into the teams, players and businessmen that helped put baseball on the map and up through more modern day lore. Some things have not changed about baseball....you be the judge. One thing to note...the reader is not stellar, but the content more than makes up for his lack of flair.

    I've seen some unfavorable reviews of this books pointing towards the lack of baseball strategy covered. READ THE DESCRIPTION. That is not what this purported to accomplish.
