    Chris Von der Ahe knew next to nothing about baseball when he risked his life’s savings to found the St. Louis Browns, the franchise that would become the St. Louis Cardinals. Yet the German-born beer garden proprietor would become one of the most important - and funniest - figures in the game’s history.

    Story

    I was impressed at all the daily game information the author was able to dig up from the 1883 season. The pre- and post-game stories about the players, managers and owners were great.

    Story

    I like stories, audiobooks and the Detroit Tigers, so I was really looking forward to this book. However, I was disappointed. First, it does not contain a collection of great stories, it's simply the background behind the building of a couple of the Tigers teams. Second, the stories jump around from year to year without compelling reason to be jumping around.

    I found all the information in this book believable and very useful. There is so much information packed in this book, that I'll have to listen to it a second time.

    Smart Ball follows Major League Baseball's history as a sport, a domestic monopoly, a neocolonial power, and an international business. MLB's challenge has been to market its popular mythology as the national pastime with pastoral, populist roots while addressing the management challenges of competing with other sports and diversions in a burgeoning global economy. Baseball researcher Robert F. Lewis II argues that MLB for years abused its legal insulation and monopoly status.

    Sally Harrison-Pepper says: "Smart Book with an Unfortunate Narrator"

    Packed with great baseball business facts, but technical and dry. I would get another book by this author for informational purposes.
