To this day, minor league teams mean much to small-town America, and there has been a renewed interest in capturing their histories. The minors flourished after World War II, when there were over 50 leagues and returning GIs filled the lineups, looking for a big break. Mickelson was a star first baseman in the Piedmont, Southeastern, Texas, and Pacific Coast leagues. He only got 37 major league at bats, including some shining moments for the St. Louis Browns in 1953. This is his anecdotal, simply told tale. Recommended for larger collections.
