What readers are saying on Amazon
"I am a baseball history buff so when I saw this title I had to have it. The stories are wonderful. The research that was done for these stories is amazing. These stories get down to the how and why and are loaded with great research notes. The many pictures that are included with the stories are the icing on the proverbial cake. I would recommend this book to any baseball fan, whether the fan is into the history of the game or not."
"Interesting anecdotes from all eras which gives us insight into pop culture and baseball history."
"I'm not a baseball fan but I found Pages from Baseball's Past to be completely engrossing. The entertaining stories and old-time illustrations are a perfect marriage of words and pictures, with each adding value to the other. This book is a perfect gift for the baseball nut, and one that other members of the family may pick up and enjoy."
"I'm no hardcore baseball history buff — I'm not really even a baseball fan. I've always been a football guy (and not even much of a reader, truth be told). But the stories Craig presents are really interesting and engaging. They're perfectly sized, encapsulated little stories — a page or two per (perfect for me!) — a glimpse into the lives of interesting characters in interesting times. Each story has one or more pictures to illustrate it. I wouldn't want to see the pictures without knowing the stories behind them, and I wouldn't want to hear the stories without seeing the pictures (I like to see who we're discussing!). Perfect!"
