America’s favorite pasttime from A to Z.

From young to old, new to tried-and-true, here is the baseball book for every fan. With one or more baseball-related terms for each letter arranged in alphabetic order, accompanied by a stirring illustration, this gorgeous compendium celebrates America’s game. Large paintings of scenes alternate with scrapbook-style pages. Facts, figures, faces, lists, and other information comprise an additional resource in the back of the book. As contemporary as today’s sports page and as nostalgic as an old baseball card, this is an alphabet book for kids, their parents and grandparents that can be used all through the year.
