BASEBALL HEROES AND EVERYDAY PLAYERS AND THE PART THAT HISTORY EVOLVES AROUND THE GAME MAKE THIS BOOK ONE OF THE BEST THAT I HAVE READ. THE PICTURES THEMSELVES ARE INCREDIBLE AS THEY PORTRAY THE GAMES GREATEST MOMENTS AND THE GAMES MOST DISAPPOINTING EVENTS. THE TEXT IS COLORFUL AND FULL OF IMAGES THAT BRING BACK THE GAME AS IT WAS PLAYED AT THE START AND EVENTS FROM THE LAST TWO DECADES ARE BROUGHT BACK INTO MEMORY AS GREAT GAMES THAT I REMEMBER SEEING. THE EVOLUTION OF THE GAME IS INCREDIBLE TO SEE AS WELL AS THE CHANGES THAT TECHNOLOGY HAS BROUGHT TO THE GAME. FINALLY IT BRINGS GREAT RECOGNITION TO THOSE UNFORTUNATE THAT BECAUSE OF THEIR RACE WERE NOT RECOGNIZED AS BASEBALLS GREATEST DURING THEIR ACTIVE PLAYER CAREERS. THIS IS A MUST FOR THE AVID BASEBALL FAN. (GERARDO MAGANA

This book could always have more added to it over the ages, and one could always say 'What about... Why wasn't that included in the book?', but nonetheless this book is a treasure. I dearly loved every page I turned and every paragraph I read. It is loaded with photos of a great many heros of the game, and enlightening backgound and stories. It obviously was a great effort to put this book together, and I consider it a worthy tribute to the subject. Baseball is a sport of emotion and devotion. It has grown with America, and therefore is an integral part of our nation's soul. More can always be told about history of the game, and more should be told, but this is a wonderful presentation. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Anyone who ever played or watched the game cannot fail to be moved by the rich tapestry of baseball legend that comes to live in the text and especially the illustrations of this book. The essay by Doris Kearn reminiscing about the Brooklyn Dodgers, and tying that into the love for her family is haunting and very beautiful, while Thomas Boswell's reflections on his mother's love for the Washington Senators is moving as well as dryly hilarious. In its essence each player discussed in detail comes to life in poignant detail. A must for anyone who cares deeply for the game.

I've read Ward & Burns' book twice. I could look at the historic photos for hours. It is NOT filled with stats, batting averages, or on-base percentages. I was amazed at the true origins of my favorite sport. The quotes are thought provoking and it takes me down memory lane each time I pick it up. If you want to smell the green grass on a summer afternoon, hear the crack of a wooden bat smothered by the roar of the crowd or wipe the dirt from your uniform after you slide into second, then read Baseball:An Illustrated History.

A tour de force of a book to accompany the PBS video series. This book is one of the best to examine the history of baseball and its impact on America and the American people. Highlights include the coverage of Jackie Robinson and the Negro Legues, particularly the interviews with Buck O'Neil (who should be in Baseball's Hall of Fame). The only disappointment was that it was a bit short on information about Mickey Mantle. Still, this is a major work that belongs on the coffee table of baseball lovers everywhere.

Like the celebrated video version, the Ward-Burns book is but one chapter of baseball history. The entire saga of our inter-national pastime did not take place (as Ward and Burns would have us believe) almost exclusively in New York City and Boston. And where is the chapter on the major contributions of Latin American countries and ballplayers to the heritage of Panamerica's national pastime?

Yes, Booklist, there is a MUCH better volume on baseball than this one and (in particular) the Baseball Encyclopedia. It is Total Baseball!!! For that matter, I found the books "Ball Clubs" and "Baseball Uniforms of the Twentieth Century" to be better books. Nevertheless, this book is still a good one. It's just not THE greatest. . .

This is the best book on baseball that I have ever read. I have other books on baseball but this is the one that I keep coming back to again and again and again.
You've read the rest, here's the best!

Very well put together. Has excellent pictures and a delightful interview with Negro Leagues legend Buck O'Neil. Great companion for the PBS series.

A thorough yet readable account of baseball history compiled in the typical Ken Burns style.
