Descripción

"What's more amazing is that in it's 116-year history, there has never been a book written aboiut, there has never been a book written about the Louisville Slugger and what it has meant to tens of millions of baseball fans. This book does that. It traces the history of baseball from its roots in various children's games and the British game of cricket. It melds baseball history and the evolution of its bats from crude, hand-turned clubs to sleek lightweight aluminum models." This book has 150 pages and is profusely illustrated. The book is a SIGNED copy from the author, Bob Hill. N° de ref. de la librería 044839

Sinopsis:

Crack of the Bat is a comprehensive and entertaining look at the most famous icon in the history of baseball, the "Louisville Slugger" bat. The story includes the evolution of bats from pioneer wagon tongues to the sleek aluminum models of today. It examines the amazing physics involved in hitting a baseball, where .007 second means the difference between a home run and a foul ball. It tells the fascinating history of the still family-owned Hillerich & Bradsby Company, which in just 80 years went from making butter churns to producing seven million bats a year. Reinforcing this tale are dozens of stories about the the idiosyncrasies of the most famous hitters in baseball history, including Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Stan Musial, Ted Williams, Cal Ripken Jr., and Derek Jeter. Illustrated with hundreds of archival photographs, baseball decals, and icons -- many in color -- this book will become as much a cherished keepsake as some of the bats it describes.
