Every Major League town has its favorite sons, but only one from each city gets to be the Hometown Hero. Published in conjunction with Major League Baseball, Hometown Heroes presents the game’s most outstanding players as selected by you, the fans. Beautifully illustrated, this must-have book is a celebration of the best of the best.

Millions of voters whittled a list of 150 nominees down to thirty Hometown Heroes, one for each team. The players selected represent the finest ever to wear their team’s uniform. This is the pantheon of baseball legends–Aaron, Ryan, Clemente, Schmidt, Ripken, and Seaver, among others. They are the men whose remarkable legacies were forged the moment they first took to the diamond, and were assured the moment they hung up their cleats to assume a position among the all-time greats. All 150 finalists are profiled here–career highlights, statistics, amazing photographs, fabulous tidbits, and other features.

For more than a century, baseball fans have debated endlessly which players have earned the right to be called the finest of the sport. Hometown Heroes pays tribute to the cream of the crop.
