Description du Livre

Most hardcore baseball fans know that the Brooklyn Dodgers relocated to Los Angeles in 1958 and that the Washington Senators became the Minnesota Twins in 1961. But how many are aware that, long before those changes, the Brooklyn Dodgers were known as the Brooklyn Robins and the Washington Senators were originally called the Washington Nationals? Or that before the New York Yankees were the New York Highlanders (aka Hilltoppers), they were actually known as the Baltimore Orioles? From 1869 (the founding of the Cincinnati Red Stockings) to the present (as the Colorado Rockies and the Florida Marlins expansion teams begin major league play), Professional Baseball Franchises traces the history of every team that ever played professional ball. Arranged alphabetically by city, each team listing includes the league in which the team played; years in existence; type of franchise (charter, renamed, relocated or expansion); cross-references to the team's past and present names; and alternate team names, if applicable. The book also contains a handy Appendix of Leagues, a Bibliography and an Index of Team Nicknames. For the baseball buff, the journalist, the researcher and the sports trivia whiz, Professional Baseball Franchises will delight those who want to know about the Giants in Chicago, Dallas and Poughkeepsie, as well as the team in San Francisco.
