17 National League pennants and 8 world pennants the team won during this period, there were the unique personalities and imperishable moments that remain so much a part of the lore of the game: John McGraw's pugnacity, Christy Mathewson's fadeaway, Fred Snodgrass's muff, Mel Ott's leg kick, Carl
Hubbell's scroogie, Bobby Thomson's home run, and Willie Mays' catch. Even the Giants' ballpark, the Polo Grounds, had a personality of its own, with a center field that seemed as expansive as Utah and abbreviated foul lines that turned many an ordinary fly ball into a mighty home run.

This is a book that a Real fan puts together. It a history of a great ball club of a bygone era that should never be forgot. A visual history of the NYG's Beginings is presented entirely in photos. All the photos are clear and easy to understand. There is captioning where needed. And the captioning lets you know from the first that Mr. Bak is a true fan of the NYG and a fan of the true game of America.
I enjoy the Arcadia books. If you can tell a story of a person, place or thing in photos the Arcadia Publishing company is for you.
If you like visual history's, Arcadia books are for you.
