PAT'S REVIEW 

This book looks at 50 changes in the game of baseball and the author does his own ranking. From the Black Sox scandal, to Marvin Miller who fought for player rights, to Richie Allen who gave up his career to fight in court for free agent. You have lowering the pitcher’s mound, the Boss working free agency to the Yankees advantage to win, and of course the players strike and then a season when baseball was not here ant more because of an lock out. You also have players the author feels made changes to game and how equipment was introduced. This is a very interesting book. The chapters are short and give you just enough information on a topic if you did not know about it before, or some more information if you did. A very good book and worth the read. I got this book from Netgalley.com. I gave it 4 stars. Follow us atwww.1rad-readerreviews.com
