Presenting over 170 photographs, programs, and maps this volume documents not only the play on the field, but the fun and excitement off the field as well. The book contains a chapter on Fort Worth's black baseball history, which dates back to the turn of the 20th century, and includes the new discovery of a forgotten ballpark dedicated to the black players and leagues of the early 1900s. Though the details are difficult to trace, this chapter showcases the pride the players demonstrated at the local level and the force they became in the national Negro leagues.

Good intentions aside, this small yet expensive ($20) book is an amateur(ish) attempt to highlight very interesting fort worth professional baseball history through pictures. The writing was clearly not done by a professional writer. As for the pictures/photos -- many are cropped wrong...cut right off the page! Some also lack easy-to-find identification of the people in the picture. In short, this book/edition is sorry-to-say, a mess... I got my money back. Save yours.Was this review helpful?
