Nationals on Parade: 70 Years of Washington Nationals Photosby Mark Stang, Phil Wood
Culled from 12 public and private photo archives, this collection
Over 225 black and white photographs span 70 years of baseball history in this stunning collection of Nationals images. From the days of Sam Rice and Joe Cronin to Roy Sievers and Harmon Killebrew, the famous and forgotten fill these pages and recall the glory of Washington Nationals baseball.
Culled from 12 public and private photo archives, this collection includes dozens of previously unpublished images. Many of the older photographs were locked away in dusty files fir decades until appearing here for the first time. Printer's marks were removed and the detail in the images was revealed through careful restoration. Most of the photographs have been reproduced to near their original size to faithfully record what the photographer saw.
These photographs record the changing face of baseball through the century by documenting the evolution of equipment, ballparks, uniforms and batting styles. Players, managers, owners, and broadcasters-they're all here, with captions that bring their stories to life. From the glory days of Bucky Harris to the agony of 1971. From Walter Johnson to Frank Howard and everyone in between.
