about

The story of America's pastime is rooted in our history. The most commonly told stories of baseball are no mystery. They can easily be found in any of the thousands of books on this team or that player. In 100 Years of Baseball, we get to look even further into the past at the stories that didn't make the headlines.

Down through the years as baseball grew, Lee Allen traces the development... the New York knickerbockers of yesteryear; Jackie Robinson; the dark days of 1919,  to the shenanigans of Durocher and MacPhail, and the New York Yankee world series monopoly.

For a full-fledged history of professional baseball with all its crises, climaxes and heroes 100 Years of Baseball is a book that will excite you like no other.
