Riassunto: This impressive history of baseball in the smaller towns and cities of the U.S. is divided into three sections. The first covers the years from 1877 to 1920, when the modern game was evolving and the general outlines of major and minor leagues were taking shape; the second treats the period from 1920 to 1950, the golden age of the minors; the third is devoted to the expansion of the majors and the rise of television, both of which all but destroyed the minors, reducing the number of leagues from 59 to 21.
From Library Journal:
Sullivan, author of The Dodgers Move West (LJ 6/1/87), has written a history of minor league ball that is intended to present a sampling of memorable minor league players, teams, and games. Sullivan's thesis is that despite the fact that the minors have always been considered secondary to the majors, the minors have a rich history of their own, and many minor league teams (e.g., the Pacific Coast League) could have become major league clubs if the owners of first the National League and then the American League (itself created from minor league teams) had allowed them to. Instead, major league teams were for decades confined to the Northeast until the Athletics, Dodgers, and Giants moved west at the expense of strong minor-league franchises. Sullivan argues that the minors are still where the beauty of the game can be rediscovered. Recommended for public and academic libraries.
