About the Author
DEAN BURRELL is a decades-long baseball fan, having learned the game by watching the greats at Candlestick Park in San Francisco. Living in the Bay Area, Dean is fortunate enough to have access to two local major league teams and has been known to sneak out of work to attend day games (but don't tell his boss).
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
A sad substitute for missing his actual little league season but better than nothing. Trying to teach him to appreciate the history of the game since there aren’t any live games to watch now.
I requested this book in exchange for an honest review. I plan to gift to my 12 year old baseball loving nephew!
For those of us like myself who don’t know too much about baseball other than a few words of terminology or some of the players I appreciated the acronym stat key. It gave me a bit of information that I didn’t know.
The book is laid out with the chapters by player’s positions. Within each position a player is introduced in section like legendary greats, spot light, beating the odds, honorable mentions, and players around the world. You have “Righty Pitchers” and the focus is on Tom Seaver.
I liked how the book has baseball cards on the pages that lay out all the facts and stats of the player. It also has quotes from the player on the card along with a photo on a two page spread. The graphics of the cards are eye catching.
The players mentioned in the book have a short biography with some fast facts in boxes to highlight certain accomplishments.
I enjoyed the section on Justine Siegal about her becoming the first female coach in MLB history. Who knew-surely not me.
There are a lot of stats throughout and a lot of stories about some of the most influential players in the game.
The back of the book you can draft your own all-star team with a lineup sheet for each position.
This book will knock it out of the park for big baseball players and those interested in the sport!
