Description
 
Donald Dewey (au). The first comprehensive history of the fans of major league baseball -- the sport that engenders the most heated love/hate relationships among players, owners, & the paying public. Dewey writes about gamblers & groupies, the radio audiences of Red Barber & Vince Scully, obsessive collectors, even some of the executives & players themselves. Dewey profiles the aristocrats in 19th-century Troy, NY, to the thugs penned behind wire security fences in 20th-century Cincinnati to the poolside spectators in 21st-century Phoenix. Covers white baseballís reception of Jackie Robinson, baseballís continued alienation of black fans, the rise of rotisserie leagues & the statistician movement, & the growing internationalization of the game.
