Most baseball books with this sort of title are collections of trivia - as in list of trivial facts. Johnson is a legitimate baseball scholar who uses the "firsts" more as milestones in the history of the game. Even when you already know the answer to a particular point - Johnson often tells you something new. A terrific travel book because you can read it in snatches during your trip.
