Book: "Baseball in Louisville" by Anne Jewell
Here is another great book from Arcadia Publishing. I picked my copy up some time ago at a Half Price Books. I love that store.
Obviously, the cover alone is worth the cover price. Honus Wagner is on the cover of a lot of books mostly as a member of the Pirates (and, how many baseball players have an entire book written about the legend of their baseball card?). Most people forget that he played for the Louisville Colonels before they merged in to the Pirates.
I won't go on about what the book is about, but the photos alone are worth the price of the book. Also, as all of the great Arcadia books do, they give a brief but thorough description of the book topic.
You can actually read this book in one quick setting, but it is a nice book to have around for reference, and just to flip through for the fun of it.
