The History of the Minnesota Twins
Baseball may have been derived from two English games, cricket and rounders, but it is definitely The Great American Game. Maris, Cobb, Young, and Ruth made it that way. McGwire and Sosa have kept it alive, giving baseball fans much to cheer about as they take a trip around the bases time after time. This year, Creative Education's baseball series welcomes the majors' two youngest teams, the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Baseball: The Great American Game chronicles the history and heroes of each team, from its beginnings to the present, capturing the spirit and energy of the major leagues. The swings and throws, the enthusiasm and determination, the big wins and bitter losses -- they're all here in color photographs and lively text that will have kids agreeing: This series hits one out of the park!
