Editorial Reviews

American Reference Books Annual
This new book features distinguished players from the historically most prominent National League team with 11 World Series victories and 18 National League pennants. As Cohen notes, by the 1930s, "all cities west of the Mississippi and south of the Mason-Dixon Line broadcasted cardinals games over the radio," thereby "making the redbirds 'America's Team' in many ways." . . .Written in a lively, entertaining manner, this book belongs in most public and school libraries. Cohen's choice of players and his rankings will generate plenty of controversy among long-time Cardinals fans, but the book will appeal to both old and new baseball fans of all ages who admire brilliant individual player careers summarized in crisp biographical sketches and statistics. Twenty black-and-white photographs enhance the text.
