$ **Ward, Geoffrey C. and Ken Burns. Baseball: An Illustrated History. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1994.
Age: Adult
ISBN: 0679765417
Ward and Burns have excellent reputations for accuracy and depth. This is the printed adaptation of their film documentary on baseball. Naturally, Babe Ruth has chapter-length presence in this book. Alongside him is Gehrig. Touching recognition to Gehrig and solid facts about his career and how it compared to Ruths. Available in trade paper cover, this book is long, heavy, and, thus, expensive-- list price printed on the back of my copy is $35. If you're a hardcore baseball fan, you won't suffer buyer's remorse.
