From the dawn of the professional era, through the days of Babe Ruth, the westward expansion and the thrilling championships of today, baseball's rich and remarkable history is here. Inspiring events such as Jackie Robinson's breaking the color barrier, Lou Gehrig's Luckiest Man speech and one-handed pitcher Jim Abbott's 1993 no-hitter live in a continuum with stirring photos of the game's most beloved and largest personalities. Sports Illustrated's unmatched storytelling is in high form in a book that renders exquisite anecdotes and explores baseball's cultural heritage and uniquely American character, all in unforgettable style.
