Houston Astros: NL West
Creative Company, 1992 - 32 pages
Baseball may have been derived from two English games, cricket and rounders, but it is definitely The Great American Game. Gehrig, Cobb, Young, and Ruth made it that way. Griffey, Puckett, Aaron, and Ryan have kept it alive.
This series, with color photographs and entertaining text, continues baseball's great American tradition. By taking each team and tracing its history from entry into the league to the present, these books capture the spirit of major league baseball. The swings, the throws, the looks of determination, the enthusiasm -- it's all here in colorful photos and lively text. Kids will agree: This series hits a home run!
