Here is America's national pastime, celebrated and chronicled through the works of generations of artists and writers in this lavish and beautiful volume.

The book features nearly one hundred poems, essays, letters, and documents written by such notable authors as Mark Twain, Ring Lardner, Red Smith, John Updike and Bart Giametti. The art ranges from Currier and Ives and Thomas Eakins, to Norman Rockwell and Andy Warhol. The book also includes reproductions of all of the Baseball Hall of Fame inductee plaques.

A delight for both the casual enthusiast and the most ardent fanatic, Baseball: A Treasury of Art and Literatures will both warm the coldest winter nights with the undying glow of the game, and make every summer night feel like your team has just clinched its long-awaited pennant.
