Also traces the history of the Brooklyn Dodgers, which is interesting.

I thought the author was a little too much of the "never forgive, never forget" school... still mourning the move of the team to LA. That was over 50 years ago and even if the Dodgers stayed in Brooklyn, Ebbets Field would be long gone, so move on.

All in all, though, a decent book...
