Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Though often associated with fine bourbons, riverboats and thoroughbreds, Louisville, Kentucky is home to another icon--the Louisville slugger. Indeed, the history of professional baseball itself is interwoven with Kentucky's largest city. Yet, Louisville's legacy as a bastion of baseball has only been available in scattered biographies, team histories, and memoirs. The Louisville Baseball Almanac offers the first comprehensive look into Louisville rich heritage of professional teams, ball players, and managers. In the late 1880s, as baseball first began to capture America's attention, Louisville boasted one of the best pro teams in the league, The Louisville Eclipse (later renamed the Colonels), won the pennant in 1890 and gave rise to such legends and eccentrics as Pete The Gladiator Browning, Tony Mullane, and Honus Wagner. Since then, Louisville has maintained a strong presence in baseball history, blazing trails in the minor leagues, and sending players like Dixie Davis, Pee Wee Reese, and Dwight Evans to the pros. Veteran sports journalist, Louisville baseball expert, and Kentuckian, Philip Von Borries provides dozens of never-before-published historic images, and reveals the breadth of Louisville's ball-playing legacy--finally providing the city the history it deserves.
