    A Book of Baseball Ballads covering all aspects of our wonderful past-time. The ballads may seem out of date given some reference to drinking, smoking, and gambling. But anyone who knows history knows that these players were working men without million dollar contracts and players unions. This is baseball in its true raw form showing people who were paid next to nothing and loved the game.
