From Library Journal This collection of original essays by some of America's most distinguished sports writers recognizes 50 years of baseball's Hall of Fame with stories on Cap Anson, Walter Johnson, Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle, Sandy Koufax, Roberto Clemente, and Brooks Robinson. The result is not only a history of the Hall, but also a chronicle of the game as seen through the lives of its players. Hundreds of historical photographs, including original color pictures of the museum's memorabilia, accompany the text. An accurate reflection of the game's tradition and lore, and a fan's delight. William H. Hoffman, Ft. Myers-Lee Cty. P.L., Fla.
