Su questo libro:

Riassunto: “The Last Baseball Town” is the story of an otherwise-ordinary middle-class suburban California community that became the youth baseball capital of America without any of the trappings usually associated with a sports dynasty. From 1960-87, the Campbell youth baseball system sent 14 teams to World Series play, including four Little League World Series, winning six and finishing second in five. Yet there was no master plan, and Campbell never intended to become what it became in youth baseball. It happened because of qualities beyond talent, facilities, money and obsession – personal qualities and altruism that were translated into baseball excellence. This book chronicles the history of youth baseball in Campbell from its origins before World War I through the late 1970s when it won four national championships in four years. It examines in detail Campbell’s greatest teams and achievements, and the individuals whose accomplishments and personalities shaped Campbell baseball. It also details some of the reasons that the magic dissipated, and offers insights about the nature of youth baseball that will resonate with anyone who has children involved in the sport.

About the Author: Author Chuck Hildebrand grew up in Campbell and was involved with the youth baseball program there in the late 1970s and early 1980s, and later coached youth baseball in several communities during his career as a sports journalist. A native of Palo Alto, Calif., Hildebrand worked for the now-defunct Peninsula Times Tribune in Palo Alto from 1979-92 before moving to Nevada in 1997 and establishing NevadaPrep.com, a pioneering on-line publication that covered high school sports throughout Nevada over the next 11 years. Hildebrand also is the author of Bronco Sundays, a book about the history of Santa Clara University’s football program; and Dick Davey: A Basketball Life Richly Led, a biography of the former Santa Clara basketball coach. He returned to Campbell in 2008, and works as a free-lance writer.
