Reference Sunday: First Pitch: How Baseball Began by John Thorn

I haven't posted in awhile....but that doesn't mean I haven't been thinking of books that might interesting  to read.   I found this really great title about Football  but it has been postponed and I don't like to write about books that are not available yet.   Luckily from the same publisher I saw that they have a new book on the history of baseball.   Which turns out to be ideal because  MLB playoffs started this weekend------Go Yankees!  

First Pitch: How Baseball Began by John Thorn and published by Beach Ball Books is a wonderful history  of Baseball for kids.   I even learned some things.  I love how it is written by the official historian for MLB----he does a wonderful job of explaining how baseball came to be the game we love today.   I also love his use of vintage photographs ----  fun to look at.   This is perfect for the baseball fan in your life.
