    The version of the book I read was originally published in 1983 and had a different cover than the one showed here (mine had Jim Gantner and Ken Oberkfell from the 1982 World Series)Ritter does a good job of writing an introductory book for young readers. Relying on snippets from "The Glory of their Times" these remembrances offer depth to the early part of the 20th century baseballThe first half of the book is a chronological history of the game, the second an explanation of positions, strategy and terms. A nice collectible and excellent for young readers
