Baseball History of Sports Miscellaneous Sports & Outdoors Sports & Recreation. More by Benjamin G. Rader.

The best single-volume history of the sport. Tackles the business and organizational evolution of the professional game, while not losing sight of how it was played on the field. -Washington Post Book World. Baseball reflects Rader's firm grasp of the best and latest scholarship and his insightful understanding of American sport history.

He charts an on-the-field game transformed by analytics, an influx of Latino and Asian players, and a generation of players groomed for brute power both on the mound and at the plate. He also analyzes the behind-the-scenes revolution that brought in billions of dollars from a synergy of marketing and branding prowess, visionary media development, and fan-friendly ballparks abuzz with nonstop entertainment

The history of baseball can be broken down into various aspects: by era, by locale, by organizational-type, game evolution, well as by political and cultural influence.

The history of baseball can be broken down into various aspects: by era, by locale, by organizational-type, game evolution, well as by political and cultural influence. Baseball evolved from older bat-and-ball games already being played in England by the mid-18th century. This game was brought by immigrants to North America, where the modern version developed. By the late 19th century, baseball was widely recognized as the national sport of the United States

Concise history of the game. Probably a real enthusiast would know most of what's in here, but both my husband and I (TV watchers, who attend 3-4 games a year in the stadium) enjoyed it very much.

This was a gift to a baseball fan and collector and he was happy with it.
Humin
Brilliant book, very quirky, insightful, very informative, and a heck of a lot of fun to read! The author did a lot of research to find some of the things entailed in this book!
Macage
Great! This will work well with our school. It will meet the needs of our students and faculty as required.

Have not read it yet; just browsed. Hope my son-in-law shares with me after his read. It looks great with other good reviews.

A lot of information, but it was written in 2007, so missing a lot of recent happenings. I would have liked to have seen more on individual players and not so much on people like Landis and Selig. I was surprised by how many superstars got very little coverage or none at all. But it is a book worth reading, or at least skimming to certain parts.
Soustil
I was expecting to get the never version and I was sent, what I believe, the original book. Since it is not the newer one, I am missing a few chapters I need to read for class.
Benjamin Rader's second edition of his definitive history of America's favorite national pastime continues to score. Big. The lively, compact history has been expanded, now including baseball in the 1990s, the Latino invasion, the building of retro parks, the dizzying race for home runs (think Sosa and McGwire), the return (again) of the New York Yankees and team dynasties. This may be a somewhat scholarly analysis of the sport, but it's also highly approachable and highly readable and rich in detail. Rader takes readers into the game both inside and outside the foul lines; he also corrects errors he made the first time 'round, most notably in chapters 14 and 15. (Readers of the first edition will know exactly what we mean, and can start whooping it up now.) As for the rest of you, all together now: Take me out to the ballgame ....
