Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The Eddie Kranepool Society (blog), Pro Baseball Central (blog) “This book is a must for the baseball fan that loves the games history and loves the photographs of players and teams from the beginning of the game to the present. Give it a spot of honor on your coffee table.”Rocky Mountain Telegram, May 17, 2009 “This is, in every regard, one beautiful book. A visit to Cooperstown lasts a day. They’ll have Sugar’s book for a lifetime.“Yogi Berra “What Bert Sugar doesn’t know about baseball, nobody knows.”Bob Costas“To get a better sense of the Hall of Fame, you would have to be in Cooperstown.”New York Daily News, June 7th, 2009“Sugar comes up with a beautifully envisioned, designed and esecuted stroll through Cooperstown. Pops will love this one.”USA Today.com“The legendary author takes you through the National Baseball Hall of Fame – literally – in a 272-page odyssey that will leave you feeling like you’re in Cooperstown even if you’ve never been there. Welcome to baseball heaven. Welcome to Cooperstown, New York.”Pro Baseball Central, 5/11/09“Bert Randolph Sugar is THE sports historian of our time and he has a new book out that is a comprehensive look at the Baseball Hall of Fame called Bert Sugar’s Baseball Hall of Fame, A Living History of America’s Greatest Game. I have been to the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY, four times and each time I’ve been there I’ve seen an exhibit or artifact I’ve missed in my previous trip and now with this outstanding book that is full of great pictures and of course the writing of Bert Sugar, it puts all the awe and beauty of the HOF in your hands.Juiced Sports Blog, 5/20/09“Bert Sugar’s Baseball Hall of Fame: A Living History of America’s Greatest Game is more than just a book. It’s an addiction, a twenty first century marvel, a book so perfect, it’s hard to say what’s more impressive, the top notch writing or the first class photography. Its attention to detail is so impressive, that the only thing missing is some Yankee Stadium dirt, or a little wooden splinter from one of Reggie Jackson’s bats. Never have I seen a baseball book that achieves perfection– but Sugar and photographer Bruce Curtis’ compilation is almost as magnificent as the place they strive to document.”Sports, Crackle, Pop!, 5/14/09“Bert Sugar is out with a new book marking the 70th Anniversary of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. This book is the most thorough history of the Baseball Hall of Fame that I’ve ever seen.”PressBox Online“For those who like to make the pilgrimage to the picturesque upper New York state village, this book contains everything you've seen at the Hall of Fame – and perhaps some you've missed. For those who have never made the trip, Bob Costas' description of the book sums it up best: ‘To get a better sense of the Hall of Fame you would have to be in Cooperstown.’ “Baseball Guru.com, Travel.watch.com“Bert Sugar’s Baseball Hall of Fame: A Living History of America’s Greatest Game is the Mother of all books on the shrine in Cooperstown, NY. Page after page of items from the Hall’s collection intermingle with the text of Sugar, an old hand at the sports book game – he has written more than 50 books. Recommended.”

    Having visited the HoF, I found the book comprehensive and entertaining in its depth of information on the subject, especially little-known stories about the players, e.g. dizzy dean.

    The book did not have pictures or stories about two recently-installed statutes of Ted Williams and Babe Ruth, or that in front of the museum is a scoreborad which reports the results of every game played the previous day. He also did not discuss the research section, which I visited, or the employees who are extremely helpful and knowledgable. Also, it would have been of benefit to those visiting the town to have his views about this very quaint and interesting place, which, by the way, has excellent restaurants. Overall, a worthwhile purchase and keeper for my library or for a gift to baseball fanatics.

    Sorry, I did not read the book. It was a gift for my sports-lovind son-in-law. He Did read it, and found it full of interesting facts and stories.
    He keeps it by his reading chair, and says it also makes a good cocktail
    table book for guests to read.
    As a well informed sports enthusiast, I believe he would recommend it to any sports lover.
