While there are 30 active baseball clubs, there have actually been 95 Major League franchises in history, including those that existed before the American and National Leagues were formed. Many of these teams were formed early in pro baseball's existence, and some of those dropped out after just a few games. But this fact still underscores the success that every current Big League team has had by not only surviving, but by thriving for so long.
Every team has its own unique past, but the formula for what makes each club great is similar—some combination of star players and coaches, success on the field, a devoted ownership, special personalities, fan-friendly and innovative ballparks, and perhaps most importantly, a loyal and passionate fan base.
Baseball is the most beloved sport in America, and Major League Baseball is the world's oldest professional sports league. And what makes the league so special is its collection of clubs. This fascinating book captures the names, faces and history of each.
