Mike Schmidt slamming a home run. Ozzie Smith making a spectacular play at shortstop. Nolan Ryan, Roger Clemens, and Greg Maddux unleashing unhittable pitches. Roberto Clemente, Hank Aaron, Carl Yastrzemski, Tony Gwynn, Derek Jeter, and dozens of other baseball stars. And a slew of managers, umpires, mascots, vendors, and young fans as well.
They’re all here in Baseball: 365 Days, a colorful, surprising, and even moving panorama of baseball from 1970 until the present day. Drawn from the archives of Major League Baseball, Baseball’s photographs—many never before published—trace the arc of star ballplayers’ careers: from minor-league triumphs to life in the Big Show to retirement and Hall of Fame election. In lively commentaries, veteran baseball writer Joseph Wallace offers anecdotes and stats that help bring these wonderful photos to life.
