Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Perhaps it is due to the history of the game, but baseball seems to develop more collectors and collections than any other sport. Here is a glimpse into special collections and the history of baseball: the game and the players. While the names of these major collectors may not be of any importance to young readers, the collections themselves will hold a certain fascination. Different aspects and collections are presented in each of the seven chapters. Readers will learn about the evolution of the baseball, the glove and the bat. The author talks about Babe Ruth's home run record, how Roger Maris broke the record in 1962, Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire broke it in 1998, and Barry Bonds set a new record in 2001. Wong remarks on the steroid use in major league baseball as well. There are important collections of baseball uniforms. Here the author talks about particular jerseys and the players who wore them, such as Jimmie Foxx and Jackie Robinson. The card collecting chapter would not be complete without a discussion of the "ultrarare" T206 Honus Wagner card. World Series memorabilia and trophy collections round out the book. Wong offers good advice to young collectors in the final chapter. He tells them to "[r]ead high-quality baseball books and learn about the game's rich heritage" and "collect what you like." Baseball fans will be introduced to ballplayers from every era. There is a photograph of the first Negro League World Series, which would make an interesting segue from this book to Kadir Nelson's We Are the Ship, in which he has painted a portrait of the players in this photograph. Baseball fans and collectors will pore over the photographs in this book. Reviewer: SharonSalluzzo
