Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Eau Claire has been a hotbed for amateur and professional baseball since the end of the Civil War. Wisconsin's Chippewa Valley has had the honor of donning dozens of nationally known baseball stars in its uniforms (most notably Hank Aaron) as well as hosting thousands of other players who were stars in their own right. With this collection of images, author Jason Christopherson takes the reader on a journey in time through the eyes of a baseball fan. Many of the images are from the collections of the players themselves and are therefore available to the public for the first time in this book.

Mixed in with the images are stories-and not just the kind you would find in the newspaper. Unless, of course, your local paper runs stories such as the one on a future major leaguer who, not knowing any better, ate gravy-laden pork chops with his bare hands on his first road trip!

About the Author

Based on the numerous interviews he has conducted with former players, coaches, front office men, and umpires, Christopherson shares nuggets like this throughout the book. Insightful and informative, yet entertaining and funny, Baseball in Eau Claire is a book western Wisconsin baseball fans are certain to enjoy.
