While visiting a friend recently, I had the opportunity to pick up this book he had in his 'library' of baseball literature, and much to my amazement, I felt like I had been 'catipulted' back in time and could almost feel myself become part of this 'magical' and 'mystical' era of how baseball has come to be known as 'America's Favorite Pastime'. Not only is the reading of this wonderful 'game' as we call it engrossing, but the pictures and drawings within it are absolutely 'magnificent' and abundant. At the end of each year, the reader will find a 'wrap up' of that season's games along with a list of the Top-10 players and their 'stats' with an ensuing conclusion as to which team 'stands alone' and takes all of the 'marbles'. This is a 'must read' book for any baseball enthusiast like myself, and I knew I just had to have it as part of my baseball 'library' as well.
