What People are saying about this

Richard Miller
The beat goes on in the publishing of team encyclopedias. Sagamore Publishing, using the title Sports Publishing, adds its annual addition to the genre with The Dodgers Encyclopedia. The opening chapter traces Dodger history from the misty beginnings of the team in rural Brooklyn through the following 140 years of baseball in Brooklyn and Los Angeles. Famous Dodger managers, legendary executives, sportscasters, no-hit ballgames, and the ballparks - from Capitolineto Chavez, all receive full chapter attention.
