My husband collects baseball books mostly. This one fits the bill, but crosses over into all of the Twin Cities sports teams. It is a personal account of the events that happened during the time period that can be remembered by most adults. Very entertaining read. Take a trip down memory lane with Mark Rosen and friends.
