The Washington Baseball Fan's Little Book of Wisdom

This book assembled engaging trivia and inspirational anecdotes from D.C.'s baseball past. Included here are not only factoids from the WashinSenators, but also the Homestead  Grays, a Negro League team that actually outdrew the Senators.


This book tells the story of the rivalry from the first game these epic teams played against each other in 1901 through the 2013 season in what former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani called “the best rivalry in any sport.”


On city streets and suburban sandlots, millions of boys have played the nation's game. Growing Up Baseball recounts the stories of those few whose childhood dreams of playing in the big leagues came true.
