Sports Illustrated a lesson in MLB history. in beautiful, expansive book. This is the kind of book baseball fans can cherish. Whether you agree or disagree with Sports Illustrated's choices, one thing is certain-you cannot dispute the crisp writing, bold photography and compelling layout of Baseball's Greatest. -Bob D'Angelo, The Tampa Tribune. Sports Illustrated at its best.
Since it first began, Sports Illustrated has had the best sports writing in a magazine. So it is no surprise that this is a good book. I could have gladly skipped the article on Barry Bonds, since it was less about him as a baseball player, and more about him as a pain in the butt. Baseball, and sports in general, have produced some of the best American writers - Grantland Rice, Jimmy Cannon and many more. This book is a wonderful sampling of this writing and bring to life some of the magic of baseball when it was a game, and as it became a business.
