Baseball Americana


Baseball Americana is a lavishly illustrated history of America’s favorite sport, compiled from the unparalleled collections of the Library of Congress, first published in 2009. Newly reprinted, Baseball Americana features more than 350 illustrations, including rare and early baseball cards, team portraits and ballpark panoramas. From baseball’s biggest stars to street urchins, from its most newsworthy stories to sandlot and little League games, Baseball Americana tells the history of baseball’s hardscrabble origins, rich cultural heritage, and uniquely American character. Sports Illustrated calls the book as a “treasure trove.” Don’t miss this evening with co-author Harry Katz who will also share memorabilia of our home team and the critical role Massachusetts played in the game's evolution. Meet at Arlington Senior Center, 27 Maple St., Arlington. Co-sponsored by Arlington Council on Aging and open to students of all ages. Katz is former head curator in the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress and a lifelong Red Sox fan.
